The light winds continued but just after sunset each night I have nice rainstorms which bring winds of every strength from every angle. In one 24 hour period I made good just 19 miles! That is tropical sailing for you. Thankfully the Sri Lankan fishing boats have disappeared but the Sumatran ones will be appearing as I head east.
Now that I have a little wind things are looking better. For now. But it is going to be a long slow passage. If I have enough wind and fuel I will bypass Sumatera. I may even change my destination to Phuket which is at least one day closer…
