How does one determine a great passage?

I suggest that it is when I can leave the bow hatch open and use the bunk for reading and relaxing without any threat of a wave washing in. Under that standard we have had a great passage and our best yet. We are anchored in Fakarava, after transit of the relatively easy reef pass. We have swam in the crystal clear waters of the lagoon and will soon join some other cruisers for a sundowner.

An amazing change to the Atolls of the Tuamotus after the Marqueses. The Tuamotus used to be large volcanic islands but the interior of the islands collapsed leaving on the fringing coral, which many times is just at sea level or slightly below. The interior is now just massive lagoons. Fakarava's lagoon for example measures 32 by 15 miles.
