After last night's excitement with Colleen's steering problem, today has been relatively quiet. We had a good sail to the approaches to Jaco Island but then the seas became quite confused. We also had the wind almost behind us which made the ride very rolly. Worst of all we had 2 knots of current against us. In short it took a while to get around Jaco Island!
When we did approach the island it was only glimpsed between rain showers and low cloud. Similarly the main island of East Timor, which is very high but was (and still is) mostly shrouded in cloud.

I'm sure East Timor will be very spectacular when a bit of sun arrives to illuminate it!
