Sailing to Ua Pou from Nuka Hiva and Hiking to a Waterfall S2E16

Anna, Daly, and Linus go on their first sail to a new island together. They sail from Nuka Hiva to Ua Pou in the Marquesas Islands. Its a close-hauled, upwind sail. This is the sixth of six permanently inhabited islands in the Marquesas that Linus and Daly have visited in the Slow Boat.

Anna and Linus meet Jerome from Pukue’e Pension in Hakahau, Ua Pou and go on an all 4-hour hike to the waterfall near Hakahatau, which takes all day. Ua Pou is known for its jagged peaks.

A shrinking weather window to Tahiti forces them to set sail for Fakarava in the Tuamotos after only a two night stay. Linus has to meet his wife and daughter Janna and Sophie in Tahiti by July 1, 2017, and the Slow Boat Sailing crew is running out of time to get there.
