Been motoring the last day or so up through the Raui Island group south of Batam and Bintang. Now between these two islands motoring against quite a strong current and retracing our course from earlier in the year when El Oro participated in the inagural Neptune Equature Race.
Now only a few hrs from the Malacca Strait. Have decided to drop anchor for the night so I can get some sleep and we can do the Strait crossing and SIngapore approach during the day. Within minutes of the pick touching down we were hit by an intense squall, 20-30kn and blinding rain. Would not have been fun if at the wheel underway - far more fun with a G&T hiding in the comfort of the Saloon!
ETA Sing, tomorrow just after lunch. Beers in the pool at Raffles in the afternoon....
