Re: Off to Indonesia
Actually we are going to South Africa to avoid the pirate waters further north. The advice from the naval forces patrolling the area is to stay south of 12°S when west of 78°E. We will stop at Christmas, Cocos-Keeling, Mauritius, Nossy Be in Madagascar, and then reach South Africa at Richards Bay in mid November - we hope.
We have moved out of the marina where we have been for two weeks and are now anchored at Fanny Bay along with about 90 other boats. There was a nice breeze this afternoon (sea breeze?) but nothing before or after.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
