Relaxed lightwind sailing to Bora Bora

On Sunday we had a beautiful sailing day with flat seas (we’ve seldom seen the Pacific so calm) and a light breeze from the south-southwest that was just enough to keep Pitufa’s gennaker filled and flying. It was veeeery slow sailing (7 hours for just 25 nm ;-) ), but we were not in a hurry and enjoyed the ride that was smooth enough for Leeloo to spend the day stretched out in the cockpit. We considered sailing straight on towards the Tuamotus, but then we decided to stop in Bora Bora which had been luring us all day with its unique silhouette that is dominated by Mont Pahia (661 m)and Mont Otemanu (727 m), two towering volcanic cliffs of sheer black rock.
