Avalon Harbor, Catalina to Taiohae Bay,

Across the Pacific - California to the Marquesas
After a long and tedious refit in Ventura,CA at Ventura Isle
Marina we finally set sail from Avalon Harbor at 1400 hrs on the
16th of May and headed out across the Pacific for French
Polynesia.  After some discussion with the crew I had capitulated
and deferred going to the Galapagos and Easter Island due to the
lateness of our start and the potential of Hurricanes.  What
follows is an account of our crossing.  Actually I'm just going to
post some pictures for now and will catch up on the logs soon.
