Arrived in Uligan, Maldives. We were temperature- checked and we were told that there is a state of medical emergency declared in the whole country. We have been denied a cruising permit until the 22nd of March. Quarantined in paradise! Hopefully, they will change their minds and allow us to visit uninhabited islands. We're happy that they let us in anyway.

Happy sailing! After allnthe windless hours, it is great to be sailing again. We have to slow the boat down during the night to avoid arriving in the dark. Already 4 boats in the anchorage, should be fun catching up with everybody! Sent from Iridium Mail & Web.
