Position Report: April 25, 2016

Position: 1º 0.21′ S 100º 22.746′ E Safe and sound in Padang after a lightning (& cake) filled passage. It will be an interesting challenge to find our way around, as this appears to be the commercial port. We have five days until checkout though, so I’m sure it will be fine. Tomorrow is Convivia’s […]

Position: 0º 8.166′ S 98º 20.688′ E Arrived at Sipikia under moonlit sky last night. Coming around an enormous surf break without light is pretty disconcerting, even when you’ve got satellite view, charts, and radar all corroborating that the reef is where it should be. It went smoothly though, and we had enough energy left […]

Position: 0º 34.44′ N 97º 44.064′ E Arrived in Lagundri, amidst surfers and world class break. We ran out of fuel and had to sail in, which was a bit hairy, but I’m so grateful that we had the wind to do it. S/v No Regrets was right behind us offering support. It’s so reassuring […]

Position: 2º 58.536′ N 95º 57.258′ E We are just off Pulau Simelu now, but it’s too late to make landfall tonight. Beyond that, we heard of a lovely little island just south of here that we are eager to see. We should make it before midday tomorrow. Today was spent mostly motoring. The kids […]

Position Report: April 12, 2016

Position: 4º 59.034′ N 95º 11.418′ E The anchorage was so rolly last night that we gave up on sleeping by 4:30am. This allowed us to make a early start and, with good wind, we were able to sail all day. The downside was that the swell continued well out to sea. Lucky for us […]

Position: 5º 29.616′ N 95º 13.542′ E Mainland Sumatra is gorgeous folks. We opted to anchor tonight rather than make passage and it seems like the right choice. Sharing the anchorage with us are Zuleka, Salt Breaker, and Peregrine. It will be tough to pry ourselves away from the beach and promise of sightseeing. We’ll […]
