The following pages chronicle the journey of the sailing vessel Pelagic and her crew. We are a family of 5; Michael, Amy, Zander, Porter and Anakena, taking our 42' Hallberg Rassy as far as we can comfortably go in three years. We left Oregon in September 2014, participated in the 2014 Baja Haha, continued on through the Panama Canal, into the Caribbean, up the coast of the US to Maritime Canada and from there crossed the Atlantic. After an arrival in Ireland we toured Scotland, then sailed down to France, Portugal and on to Morocco. In January of 2016 we slowed down considerably and enrolled the kids in a local Spanish school in Sanlucar de Guadiana for a few months. In the spring of 2016 we crossed the Atlantic towards the Caribbean. We are now in the Pacific, officially on our way home, albeit via a very circuitous path. We are currently in French Polynesia and looking at weather windows to Hawaii before finally making landfall back in the Pacific Northwest.

Currently our exact location is not available. Our spot coverage will pick us back up in Hawaii towards the end of May, 2017.

More photos of the Marquesas

Photos are slow in downloading.  Glacially slow!

Our anchorage in Ua Huka.
Another anchorage to ourselves in Pua, Nuku Hiva.

The kids being motor heads.

Fording one of the many rivers on our way to the waterfall.  After Ana saw a two foot freshwater eel she refused to cross any more rivers, only Dad took her down on this crossing.

Just a small bunch of bananas.

  1. Awesome post. It gives us hope that we can follow your path next year. We depart the San Juan Islands of WA in August with 3 kids and a dog. I wonder if we will want to try and pull off a loop as far south as the Tuamotos and get back up to at least Hawaii in one school years time. Worse case we are still having fun in Mexico! So we aren't too worried. Are y'all still traveling with a dog? We will be :/ Thanks for the update and tips! s/v Tuwamish
