"The lovely thing about cruising is that planning usually turns out to be of little use". - Dom Degnon
Following our departure from Lembata brought us to what would become one of our favourite spots at Kroko. At this time, we attempted the the southern channel and, although clear enough to see the bottom, with a 2.5m draft, we were bumping on the bottom. This bar was definitely not wooden! A fisherman coming past guided us to the right channel. On future trips we would take the long way around.

We anchored at Tg Gedung for an overnighter and respite from the windless (and relentless) swell. The following day after an 0645 departure with a reefed main we anchored at Maumere (Sea World), just in time for champagne and margaritas!
We were to become firm friends with Peter and Marlee on 'Cool Change', a 26' Vancouver, from Vancouver, and carry their beer for them.

May all your bars be wooden and well-stocked!
