We left Mesanak at dawn.  The plan was to go up through the Riau Islands to Batam (our last stop in Indonesia).  The squalls and rain are on going now so it was another sail/motor/get soaked and repeat.  We anchored for one night on the way and arrived at Nongsa Point Marina on Batam late afternoon.
Nongsa Point is a large resort complex on the Island of Batam and there is a fast ferry which goes backwards and forwards to Singapore.  Staying in the Marina allowed us use of the resort’s facilities which included a very nice swimming pool, so after all the early mornings and long frustrating sails with the regular battering from squalls it was a really nice break.  We had a couple of very good meals in the Hotel and enjoyed the pool.
