Linus leaves the Slow Boat in Atuona, Hiva Oa in the Marquesas and flies to Tahiti where he meets up with the crew of Two Afloat Sailing, Ryan and Nicole Levinson in Papeete Marina. Ryan Levinson was a guest on the Sailing La Vagabonde YouTube channel where he also talked about his FSH Muscular Dystrophy and how his illness encouraged he and his wife to cross the Pacific in a small sailboat. Ryan tells how he copes with his illness while at sea and how he keeps sailing the South Pacific. Ryan and Nicole talk about a bad experience while anchoring with short scope and on a weedy bottom.
Linus gives you the low down on the Papeete, Tahiti (PPT) airport, and the Tahiti Airport Hotel, before he flies back to the USA by way of LAX airport. Linus searches for data SIM cards and propane adapters while he is in the capital of French Polynesia.
Check out their appearance of Sailing La Vagabonde’s video entitled “A Truly Inspiring Story (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 47”
