Arrived in Bora Bora
Sat 25 Aug 2012 04:40
Arrived at Bora Bora Yacht Club after 6h trip from Raiatea. Gerd and Ingrid from S/Y Lazy Lady waited for me in their Dinghy at the last free mooring boy of the Bora Bora Yacht Club. What a service, thanks so much friends!
Unfortunately some damage on the way - four strands of the port bottom shroud broke. Not good, can't sail on with that.
Fortunately INgrid hat contact details of a rigger in Tahiti (yep, the place I just left) and I called him. We discussed the issue over the phone and he says he's got everything in stock to make two new shrouds for me. Andre then helped me to remove the shroud, which I'll send to the rigger by plane and if all goes well I should be able to sail on end of next week.
Andre, thanks mate.
