WOHO, yes we are in Indonesia. It really feels amazing to be on the way again.
We left Darwin 30 Sept and arrived in Kupang Monday 4 Oct.
It took 95 hours, 90 hours of motoring. Wind in the nose basically all the way.
Now we are at anchor outside Kupang.
Matthew, the local agent, helped us get in contact with the quarantine officer.
We picked him up at the beach with our dinghy.
After a short visit onboard and a bit of paperwork he took us to a clinic and we had our first covid test (525 000 IDR/p ca 30 Euro).
Since then we have been sitting on our yacht.
Tomorrow, Saturday, we will have our second test and then Matthew will help us to clear in to Indonesia.
And then we are finally free to sail and explore Indonesia something we really look forward to.
Nadine and Peach where the first yachts getting here from Darwin. Now we are 7 anchored in the bay. And more are on the way.
There is a small Nordic community here now. Sweden, Denmark and Finland represented.
