Arabian Sea - Indian Ocean
Day 6 of the Crossing
We are well past half-way now, and although we can't yet smell the curry, its a good feeling.  We carry enough fuel to motor the remaining distance if needs be.
Both wind and currents are still favourable so we are progressing nicely and have not used the engine so far. Perhaps the wind gods took pity on us after the Aden to Salalah leg where we had to motor almost all the way.
Night watches are becoming a little less of a chore, particularly when connected to an iPod.  We typically see only a couple of ships during the night as we are not on a major shipping route.
