Position Report: May 17, 2016

Position: 4º 55.128′ S 101º 59.418′ E We had a nice day of sailing today. Winds aft of the beam most of the day at about 10 knots meant less roll and less noise. Eventually, just as the GRIBs predicted, the fun was over, but we were pleasantly surprised that our misbehaving engine belt, behaved! […]

Position: 3º 17.1′ S 100º 26.952′ E We are underway!! We are heading towards Cocos Keeling, with a possible refueling stop on the way. It’s been a rolly start with a lot of motoring (which we expected). Unexpected was the new new belt that I installed in the final hours of our last passage, loosening […]

Position: 3º 17.1′ S 100º 26.952′ E Moved anchorage this morning to a less rolly spot. This anchorage is closer to a little village as well. At one point in the afternoon we were visited by a group of local kids in dugout canoes. One of them was leaking pretty seriously, but the kids were […]

Position: 2º 59.55′ S 100º 31.548′ E On passage. Our first night out was a bit rough: engine overheated, alternator stopped working, VHF/AIS/Radar voltage drop (overheated). We did get the sails up for a few hours and that’s been pretty nice. I’ve managed to solve everything but the voltage drop and I think that’s immanently […]
