Arrived Pulau Tapah late afternoon. Mostly sailed with genny and mizzen, but stashed sails in time for a severe squall with blinding rain and gusts to 25kn for a few hours.
Dropped anchor in time for a late afternoon surf where I believe everyone got "shacked" (not sure what that is, but it sounds important for a successful surf session).
Anchorage quite exposed on edge of reef, but conveniently just a couple of hundred metres from the surf. So a rocky and rolly night to awaken to a perfect tropical day. The predicted increase in swell had eventuated so all overboard just after dawn for a solid morning's surf session in some classic Indo waves.
Ship-Zac's birthday today so he was, as much as is possible for the lone crew in the middle of a charter, on a day with only light duties. He spent most of it with flippers and his waterproof camera in the surf zone dodging barrels and board fins.
After lunch we pulled anchor and continued our voyage to the next group of islands S with several known breaks.
