Todays the day – Indonesian Rally departure day, at 11am from Fannie Bay anchorage. At 11am all 87 boats will cross the start line, with the Spirit of Darwin acting as start boat. The start line is a line on the chart!
After 4 weeks in Darwin it is time to move on. We are Stephen, Annie, Patrick and Ian on board. Last night we went ashore for a last meal at the Ski Club, with a few friends. First Ali who lives here and has been a great help to us all on board. And Iseta came over from Queensland to see us off too. We have said our goodbyes to those we have met along the way and also wish good luck and good sailing to our new rally friends sharing this journey with us.
We also had a phonecall from Paul & Rhu who are now back in Queensland with their caravan. We have travelled from Europe with them and now after almost two years will be heading in separate directions. Good Luck Oyster Moon and safe travelling to you. Let us meet again soon.
Our next Port is Kupang in West Timor, and will post a passage report each day of the three day passage. So Keep Well and keep watching the blog.
