Title: Made it

02:28.570N 101:50.760E

The night was not too bad, we were sheltered enough from wind and seas, and
the wind calmed during the night. At 07 this morning we took off, trying
again to get north. The current and the seas were against us pushing us
back, but the wind was not so strong as yesterday, so we we were happy about
having turned around to seek shelter for the night. However the wind kept
increasing and by the time we got close to Port Dickson we had 30 knots of
wind on the nose. We made it in to the marina without too much grief and are
now happy to be safely tied up to a dock until weather passes. Maybe we'll
take a bus in to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow and stay a few days.

Vi hadde en OK natt. Den lille øya ga akkurat nok beskyttelse til at vi
følte vi var trygge for natten. Vinden roet seg også litt etterhvert, så vi
fikk en god natts søvn. I morges klokken 7 satte vi ut igjen, med håp om å
nå port Dickson i dag. Strømmen var imot og bølgene var ennå store etter i
går, men vinden var svakere, så vi hadde klokketro på en mindre slitsom dag
i dag. Innen vi kom oss i nærheten av Port Dickson var vinden imidlertid
oppe i over 30 knop -midt i mot. Det ble en lang og vår dag på kryss i dag
og, men vi kom oss trygt i havn. Akkurat nå er det godt å være i marina,
trygt fortøyd til ei brygge mend vinden uler i riggen og bølgene bryter over
moloen. Ser ingen grunn til å fortsette i dette været, så det blir nok et
par dager i Kuala Lumpur i stedet. Vi prøver å ta buss inn dit i morgen.
