Flag Snappers

We stayed at anchor over night and had a leisurely start the next morning, back into the SE trades. Next stop Bora-Bora.

We ran into a flock of gannets enroute some of whom were very keen on catching the stem-jack. They tried over and over again to snap it in-flight but none of them managed it, although some came very close.  The vertical movement as we punched into the swell being the deciding factor.

They were very confident and flew close.
