Bora Bora

Published by


Yesterday we sailed from Raiatea to Bora Bora and enjoyed this wonderful lagoon. At night Annemarie, Sabine and Peter went to see the Miss Bora Bora contest.

During our crossing we saw already from far away the big rock towers looking out of the lagoon.
So today Peter and I started climbing at 5 a.m. and managed to summit two peaks. We cleaned the top from the garbage other climbers left behind, this as another TOPtoTOP contribution for the “world environment day”.

Already on the way up we have had a spectacular view. On the second TOP the different blue and green colours of the lagoon were even more special and we were able to see Tahaa ad Raiatea in the distance.

On the way down trough the jungle we were able to have an eye for Pachamama (on anchorage on the left).

Below the TOP in Vaitape we met the Swiss Rene Schmidlin. He was the pioneer in scuba diving in Polynesia 10 years ago. Today they own TOPdive, the biggest diving school in Polynesia together with the wonderful TOPdive Resort. Rene sponsored TOPtoTOP diving equipment. Thanks to Rene we are now able to act in a emergency; for example in a deep anchorage when the anchor is blocked by coral heads, lines or wracks; like we have had two days ago. – Danka Rene!

Thanks to iaoranet we are able to upload this report.
