Va'a Motu Racing in Tahiti



I'm glad to see that the fleet of Va'a Motu (island canoe) is still active and having plenty of fun with their huge gaff rigs.  Captain Cook observed the transit of Venus in this bay in 1769.

I love the girl on the ama, a real polynesian vahine

I am left thinking that the boat would have been so much better as a trimaran, and then she wouldn't have needed to climb way out there. The leeward ama would have righted the boat.
