We sailed out of Bora Bora's pass at midday, most of the fleet with colourful gennakers flying. We think we were first over the start line!
We are having a beautiful afternoon's sailing with wind that has picked up from 3 knots to 12: totally unexpected, as the forecast predicted very little wind.
Having a crew of 5 is such a luxury. We are on watch for 2 1/2 hours then 10 hours off...
Richard has 2 fishing lines off the stern and we are hoping for a fish supper tonight.
We are about to pass the island of Maupiti to port then later on, a tiny island called Motu One!
