Belitung to Singapore Day 2 - And a bit
Position 00:26.0 N 104:31.40 E
Date 1530 (UTC+8) Tuesday 24 November 2015
Distance run 6 nm over the ground, 6nm though the water
Trip total 269nm over the ground, 277nm through the water
A snooze got us into the early afternoon when a breeze set up that provided a bit of a roll so we decided to knock 6 miles off tomorrow’s journey and move to the anchorage on the north side of Mesanak (A in the Pilot). I will put a chart in tomorrow’s blog to show where we are.
This move gave us a quiet night and we were well set for a first light departure for our next anchorage on the south side of the Singapore Straits. The chart currently shows that we are in the South China Sea which sounds rather more exotic than it feels.
