Safe arrival at the NW corner of Belitung after 47hrs sailing. Slow trip, also because we tried to sail as much as we could despite the light winds. Tricky entrance, especially this late in the afternoon with the light in front of us and a sea breeze of up to 22 kn, but waypoints and tracks from other cruisers, who arrived before us, help us navigate through the reefs safely. Now ashore for the welcoming activities organised for the rally participants, pffff.
