After 3 days of whirlpool with frontal waves and occasional thunderstorms, the wind from the South is back to move the vast amount of water. It helps a lot. Thanks!
I have sailed into Indonesian waters!
I’m approximately 40nm from the shore. Far enough, so I can peacefully sleep during the night, and close enough, so I can feast my eyes on the horizon during the day with a tasty mountain ridge curling along the shore
The rain is pouring down and something is pushing me back towards Madang. I hope this will not last long, because this is a good week in general. I set a new distance record - 61nm/24h, met 2 fishermen boats
