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.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
