Extract:

“C’est un rituel qui a lieu presque toutes les trois semaines : le navire blanc de 126 m de long quitte le quai d’honneur devant la belle gare maritime de Papeete, passe à petite vitesse devant le motu Uta – ancien îlot de la reine Pomaré aujourd’hui englobé dans les installations du port autonome – et franchit la passe, cap à l’est-nord-est. À tribord, la baie de Matavai, où débarquèrent Wallis, Bougainville et Cook, sans oublier les Évangiles avec les pasteurs protestants de la London Missionary Society ; puis la pointe Vénus et sa plage de sable noir, haut lieu de détente des habitants de l’île. Ensuite, c’est le Grand océan.”
