Hi Everyone,
Today we sailed from Tangil Island off the town of Riung to an anchorage off the village of Linggeh. Well actually we motored for most of the way. We did have an hour with the MPS/asymetric spinnaker up and an hour close reaching, and they made the passage fun. The eastern sky was slowly filled with cirrus cloud as the day wore on. Perhaps they mean we'll get some wind in a day or two. (Dream On).

We spent three nights at Tangil Island since it was such a lovely spot. Snorkelled at least twice every day at a different spot around the island. Sundowners on the beach with all the yachties each afternoon. Very civilised. When we first arrived there were a group of US and Canadian yachts there who we hadn't seen since Alor Island. They sailed on the next day, and were replaced by another set of yachts, and the group changed again the following day when the four French yachts, two Scandinavian and a German yacht arrived.

One yacht which arrived (NZ yacht Kakadu) was the first we've met who did the eastern route to Saumlaki, Banda, Wakatobi, etc. They invited us aboard for dinner last night and we had a very nice evening.

Tomorrow we expect to sail to Gili Bodo, another 30nm west.

Trust all's well where you are...
