We had another great day today, sailing from Gilibodo to Labuan Bajo, or more accurately past Bajo to the Sail Indonesia anchorage off the Eco Lodge.

In the morning we went for a swim, snorkelling over the outer reef and visiting a couple of boats for a chat. At 1000 we got underway and with Kakadu in company we motored across the bay and through the channel south of Pulau Seraya. We had to dodge several reefs, some of which were on our Garmin charts and others not. The Garmin charts seem to be the best available for this area, but there are still omissions and sometimes offsets. The reefs are easy to see provided the sun is high and one wears polorised glasses.

We expect to spend several days here reprovisioning, exploring the town and doing a day tour to Rinca Island to see the famous Komodo Dragons. Although we'll sail to Rinca ourselves we decided a tour with a bunch of other yachties will be good fun.
