Mauritius Departure

Hi everyone,
We departed Port Louis yesterday at 1030. Clearing out took an hour visiting Immigration at the Capitainerie; Customs at their new building; and finally Customs and Coastguard desks at the Customs Dock.

Zen Again in Le Caudan Marina
We are currently at 20 28S 56 10E, motoring at 4.5 knots on a course of 260M in a 5 knot ESE wind. A 5 knot wind blowing directly towards your destination isn't ideal! We have logged 90nm so far and have about 50nm to go to Le Port on Reunion Island.

We departed Port Louis in light rain which continued until the wind died at around midnight. At least while it was raining we had wind. It ranged from 15 to 25 knots from the ENE so we made good time.  Complete overcast since departure to now, although the cloud base has lifted from very low to mid level now.

We're looking forward to arriving at Reunion. No doubt it will be another very different destination!
