after the torres straight which was only about 200 nautical miles off port moresby we still had 2000 miles to go sailing between the north coast of australia and the south part of indonesia. we had a much slower sail than expected. very little wind and flat seas with hot and humid days and nasty thunderstorms at night. we crossed oil and gas platforms and where accompanied by birds every night. sadly there were no fish at all so our diet sailing these waters was mostly based on pasta.
