Hotel Bora Bora - Blair Cup 2007 - First stop on motu Roa

The Blair Cup was founded by Hotel Bora Bora in 1983 to honour and celebrate Mr Ed Blair, the hotel's most famous repeat guest. Mr Blair has stayed at Hotel Bora Bora 45 times throughout the hotel's 46 years of existence. A keen sailor, he was the first to introduce a hobbie cat to the island of Bora Bora.

So in 1983, a hobbie cat race around the island was organised in his name.

The rules are simple: race departs from and arrives at Hotel Bora Bora's main beach. There are 3 stops on motus (smaller islands in the lagoon) along the way. Finally, it is imperative to drink and cheat!

Blair Cup 2007 was the 24th edition and took place on April Fool's Day as is often the case. :-)
