We arrived at Admiral Marina in Port Dickson at 1240 today, exactly 24 hours after departing Pangkor Marina. We logged 115nm through the water but 143nm over the ground, so we got 28nm "free" from current! We had expected to arrive late afternoon but the current got us here for lunch.

The procession of large cargo vessels using the traffic separation lanes is impressive. We also saw quite a few tugs and barges, but relatively few fishing vessels. No encounters with nets this time.
The currents were interesting. There appeared to be a southerly current flowing down the strait, overlaid on the tidal current pattern. So when the tide charts said we'd get 1.0knot with us we found 2.5 knots with us, and when it said we should have 1.0 knot against us we found 0.5 knot with us. Nice!
Zen Again will remain here at Admiral Marina until next year.
Trust all's well where you are!
