Stars End 2
Great sail from Debut . Exploring the old dutch town with its narrow streets and dutch buildings.
Arrived in Debut on the 22nd July after a long hard sail from Port Moresby. Lots of Rally boats here already but still plenty of space for us to anchor. Had issues with drift nets over the last 4 days where some boats were caught in them.
Sailing at 6.5k still using a triple reefed foresail and storm trisail on the mizzen. saw more nets and fishing boat in the night but had no problems.
Sailing well had issue with nets in the night, they were easy to spot in the dark because they had bright flashing lights at either end and were about 2 miles long.
Out in the open again after sailing thru the Torres Strait heading for Debut.
Entering Bligh passage, Sailing well with triple reefed foresail and a storm tri sail on the mizzen. Still doing 7k.
