COMMENT: Beach House – MOORED – Bora Bora Yacht Club – Isle Bora Bora – Leeward Islands
We had a lovely evening at our mooring last night and with winds predicted to be 18-25 knots today, we knew it would be a blustery sail.
This gave us a good chance to check the new gooseneck attachment which worked perfectly. With a single reef and our staysail poled out to windward, we made the 20 mile sail on one tack, averaging about 8.5 knots. There are lots of boats here and I looked in the log and was last here
in June of 2010 with Cindy, Clark and Vincent. This is my fourth time sailing into this island including when I did in 1977 aboard my 32 foot ketch, \”Triad II\”. Lots of memories and we placed a California Yacht Club Burgee here last time around, so maybe if it\’s still here, we\’ll get to update our log and re-sign it.
We should be here for 2-3 nights awaiting a bit calmer conditions and then head for the very remote Suwarrow Atoll about 650 miles to ENE.
We\’ll update the photo\’s and main ship\’s blog if we can find any decent internet.
Engines and steering seems to be good. No runs, no drips, no errors!!!
Scott and Nikki
