Bora Bora and Onwards

We picked up a free mooring ball at Bloody Mary's and spent our entire short stay there. Had lunch there twice, a good burger for $1000 cpf. Climbed to the lookout and went to a few snorkel spots. Bla bla. Easy to hitchhike everywhere and speaking to the locals it's sad to see how poorly the island is doing in this economy with lots of closed hotels not being kept up, therefore becoming an eyesore. People are nice and the lagoon is as beautiful as ever. We left the pass yesterday afternoon at 3:30pm and now at 3:30pm have covered 196 of the 484 mile passage to Aitutaki in the Cook islands. I was just about to post this when the main halyard shackle broke sending the main crashing down and leaving the halyard pulley 71' up in the air. So up the mast I went and an hour later we are under way again. Won't help our next 24 hour average.
