Another pleasant day aboard. The winds this morning were quite light but this afternoon they swung gradually to the NNW and freshened to 10-12 knots. We are currently at 01 23.5S 107 54.7E doing about 5 knots. Earlier in the day we were struggling to do 3 knots at times but we're moving along nicely now.
Today we've seen a steady stream of cargo ships since we're approaching the passage between Borneo and Belitung islands. We expect to get through there tonight and tomorrow morning, and then will be heading for Bawean Island.
On the wildlife front we went through an area with lots of seaweed this morning. This afternoon we saw a sea snake - tan and brown in colour and about 0.6m long. It was gently swimming along and seemed unperturbed by our passing close by.
Trust all's well where you are.
