Day 3 - Sept. 14

From Dave's Journal:

     Dan and Dave awoke early to check the weather forecast and to prepare the boat for our sail to Bora Bora. Winds 15-18 knots early. We followed the channel around Tahaa to Paipai Pass, exited Paipai Pass about 9 am, and entered the pass at Bora Bora about 2 pm. We had a downwind sail in winds varying between 8 and 18 knots. The swells from the SW were at a slightly different angle from the wind, making it difficult to keep the sails full. We picked up a mooring at Bloody Mary's and had dinner there that evening. The chef served us seven different types of fish, salad, and the local vanilla and coconut ice cream.
