I could imagine sailing from the Galapagos to Marquesas in a properly equipped and crewed CS30. It was comes afterward that matters assuming the OP does not not end to move permanently to French Polynesia. Both returning to the Americas and continuing rtw via South Africa are much, much more challenging. From Mauritius we probably averaged 30 knots with expected gusts and we had one of the easier passages of those we met in Richards Bay.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
