On passage

We left Darwin yesterday and have travelled 150 or so miles towards Indonesia. Wind has been inadequate but enough to try our Parasailor this morning. It is lovely when it is flying but your nerves are on edge all the time as it becomes difficult to handle if the wind changes. We managed a few hours and then about four things started to change so we took it down and now we are motor-sailing again.
We can see several other boats of the rally fleet around us which is a good feeling.
Safe sailing to all.
