We left Las Perlas Islands in Panama on March 5th, and arrived in San Cristobal, Galápagos on March 11, after having celebrated our crossing the equator the day before. We had pretty good winds for most of the crossing, until we arrived at the equator on March 10th, where, typically, the wind just died. We didn’t let the lack of wind dampen our spirits as we celebrated our crossing from the North to the Southern Hemisphere. We asked Neptune for permission to cross, Mark made a touching  toast and then we all had a quick dip, swimming on the line that divides our dear planet in two, it was a moment to cherish and celebrate ! The sun went down over the horizon, looking bigger than we had ever seen it before.

Our instruments show the moment we crossed.

From "slimy pollywogs" to "trusty shellbacks"! We become sons and daughters of Neptune
