Moku Pe'a Bora Bora Passage Video

On October 24, 2014, I flew from San Francisco to Bora Bora to help Hawaii friend, Bill Leary, sail his Beneteau 351 MOKU PE'A from Bora Bora to Kaneohe. It was a wonderful 2,500 mile passage and a great break from the projects at a time when Northern California turned cold and rainy.

I made a video that captures the essence of the trip. If the box below doesn't have the video, you can link to it directly at YouTube here:

You can also read Bill's entertaining and very well written journal entries from his 7-month cruise from Hawaii to Tonga to French Polynesia, including an 11-day passage eastbound from Nuku'alofa to Raivavae, and eventually back to Hawaii here:


  1. Tony, Excellent video! You really captured the essence of the voyage. Thanks for being such a great shipmate and friend. Noodle

  2. GREAT video Tony! The photography, the mixing of the all went together really well. I especially liked how you were able to film the pygmy kiler whales. Those Manta Rays were pretty spectacular too. Now you just need an "outtake" video. I will wager with Bill, there would be some. Thanks for all the work you put into this to let us share in your voyage.

  3. Thanks for the kind words guys! An outtake is a good idea. Bill has some great video as well. I was hoping to use some of it but couldn't squeeze it in.
