Nearly to Indonesia

We have completed the first 2 days of our planned 3 day trip to Indonesia from Darwin. Only about 150 miles to go and we hope to be anchored in Kupang (on the southwest corner of the island of Timor) by tomorrow afternoon. The first day sailing out here was slow, but very gentle, yesterday was slow and uncomfortable with too much swell and too little wind, but today is perfect – the right amount of everything and we are flying smoothly along at 7 to 8 knots under blue skies. Lots of dolphins in these waters and we have already had some visits from them – hoping for a big show of them somewhere along the way.
Our current position :
S10 degrees 57 minutes
E 125 degrees 35 minutes
1:00 p.m. Monday (Darwin time)
Heading a course of 283 degrees magnetic
