We had to wait for good light to get out of the anchorage and through the
reefs and it was not far to the next group of islands. It was a relief to
be out in the open water until I went round the south of the next islands
and it was seriously shallow. I wondered why the other boats went so far
out, but I could get through, I just had to wiggle round the coral heads.
I had to decide whether to stand on the bow with the remote for the
autopilot or stay at the wheel and rely on the colour of the water and the
depth gauge. My nerves were a bit frazzled by the time I anchored.
