After 10 days at sea, some very large swells and generally unfavourable winds the crew and Biscayne Bay made it to the Galapagos Islands where they rested for a week. They refuelled, did some restocking of fresh produce before they set off on the next leg of the journey which was approximately 3000nM to the Marquesas Islands. Anastasia and Lisa killed some time in the USA and visited the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Las Vegas before they embarked on the 36 hours in transit back to West Australia. Lisa of course is now enduring the long wait before she can rejoin the boat in Tahiti to complete the journey back to Australia. Anastasia has adjusted to life back on land and has returned to school, her pets and friends. She will remain in Australia with friends and family while we bring the boat to Australian shores, this will mean the family unfortunately will be split for a few months, but we will be reunited in Queensland with the hope of cruising the Whitsunday Islands for the summer months.
