Anchored Pulau Wayag. This truly is an idyllic place. Plan to be here a couple of weeks snorkeling/diving, fun at the beach and just chilling out. And of course some boat tasks.
Motored up to Minyaifun today. Tomorrow we will move up to Wayag where we hope to spend a couple of weeks.
Finished with diesel and groceries in Sorong, and our Raja Ampat permits in Waisai. Currently anchored in Frewin with three other boats. Now it feels like we?re out cruising!
Anchored in Waisai. Got our Raja Ampat park permits yesterday. A bit more running around to do this morning then we’ll move over to Frewin.
Anchored on the south side of Yefman Island. Tried coming up the the Selat Segewin channel yesterday but didn’t get the current time right, so after fighting a 4 kt current we decided on an anchorage for the night.
On a mooring at Yilliet Island. Here for a couple of days before leaving for Sorong.

Anchored near Tutunametal village in the Tanimbar Group. Nice anchorage in 25ft of sand. Going to chill out and catch up on our sleep.
Slow passage the last couple of days. Little to no wind, ended up motoring low rpm just to keep the boat moving. Wind filled in nicely this morning. Wonderful sailing conditions at the moment. No swell, sun and wind on the beam. Couldn?t ask for more.
Changed our check in destination to Tual. No hurry to get there.
Cleared out and on our way to Sorong Indonesia. It’s been a great two years in Australia. The highlight of course being Tassie.
At Cullen Bay Marina for a couple of weeks in preparation for departure to Indonesia. Enjoying a little dock time. Won?t see another for the next seven months or so till we get to Singapore.

Finally pulled the anchor up and left Pancake Creek this morning. Nice sail up to Hummocky Island for the night.

Arrived Mooloolaba Marina 7am this morning. Nice to be back here after a year and a half. Plan to be here one week, then onward to the north.
Just passing Cape Byron, running with 3-4m swell. Saw a few whales yesterday, one breaching not to far from the boat. Memories of Tonga!
Planning for arrival Mooloolaba early tomorrow.
