Bart arrived in Bora Bora, May 18th 2014

Just before sunset Bart made landfall in Bora Bora.
He didn't expect that paddling the last miles would be that cruel. He got current against him and finally even the wind against him. He had to put all his last strength into that finish.

I just talked to him. He is feeling very tired, has sea legs, had to sit down right away and drink a coke to bring his circulation back up and fight the dizziness. They are having a celebration for him right now. He will call me later. It was so good to hear his voice. Photos will follow in the next post.

Aloha from Maui, from a very relieved Dagmar and Soleil
