Passage Videos

Nick frequently crews aboard Raven when a long passage requires an extra hand.  The cool thing is that he takes video and posts it on YouTube so even if we aren’t aboard, we get a taste of the adventure.  First is his video of Raven’s passage from La Paz, Mexico, to Nuku Hiva, Marquesas, French Polynesia – 2650 nautical miles completed in 13 1/2 days.  And following is a video of a provisioning run, stocking up on groceries in Papeete.  Lots of liquid refreshments (mostly red wine) – but keep in mind the majority is intended to last four people from mid-April until November in parts of the world where a well-stocked grocery store is just a fantasy.
