In the fall of 1979, Vickie and Dave Case set out from San Francisco in a 29' sailboat built from a semi-kit. They harbor hopped down the coast to Manzanillo, Mexico before bravely heading the 2700 miles over open ocean to the Marquesas. Using a compass, sextant, and sumlog they covered the distance in twenty-two days. Then it was off to Tahiti, and the Society Islands, Rarotonga, Pago Pago, before heading back through Honolulu and home to San Francisco. The sailing was very primitive by today’s standards. Weather and mechanical problems were a constant challenge. The people met along the way made it all worthwhile.
