Digiboat's "Product Testing"
Tue 29 May 2012 08:44
Great sail from Sabang to Pulau Deudab last evening, close hauled in 15kn trade winds. Young Zach caught a small tuna just as we left the Sabang bay where the depth drops from 40 to 650 metres in little more than a boat length! Motored last couple of miles up to anchor in lee of island on E side.
Day break now so head around to weather shore to check the Tadoh break... To wind blown and swell not even enough so motoring a few miles to check other potentials but not looking promising so will soon abandon hope of surf today- set sail and start heading S the 180 miles to N end of Pulau Simeulue, and the start of the Mentawai chain.
