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.
