2 Dec we left Indonesia. Late 5 Dec we arrived in Phuket. 578 Nm and 89 hours of motor/motor sailing.
Since we left Darwin there has been almost only motoring, 2350 Nm.Too much due to wrong time of the year.
Because of Covid.
But we are really happy that we will be able to spend Christmas/New Year here in Thailand.
First there will be 7 days in jail at anchor. Today we had our first Covid test here in Thailand (we have done plenty of them already in Australia and in Indonesia).They will come back again on the 13 Dec.
It seems that we will be able to enter Boat Lagoon Marina on the 14th.
Nongsa Point Marina, Batam. Fuel dock. We are carrying 950 liter of Dex disel now (the best quality).
400 inn jerry cans.
2 Dec we left. Over there is Singapore.
Strait of Malacca is crazy busy.
Monster ships everywhere.
On top of that there are loads of local fishing boats day and night. Most of them without AIS.
It was a rough tough ride.
Sunrise in Phuket 6 Dec.
And we need to wear these monitors all the time.
