It has been a rather slow passage from Hakodate to Kushiro but we are here and we did it in mostly light and contrary winds, with difficult currents and we only resorted to the engine for two hours, one hour to get around Erimo-Misake, and one hour to enter harbour this morning in a dead calm. So, in all, I am very happy with the passage.

We got alongside at 1030, to a spot that was recommended by Nomzamo – thank you Nomzamo. Now we await customs to clear us in. Once the officials have been satisfied I will check the weather and see when we might be able to leave within a few days.

All is well.
