Christmas Island

Arrived here yesterday after quite a fast passage from Lombok. Shortly after the start we entered the Selat Lombok, the fierce current created a washing machine effect especially for the smaller boats, green water nearly back to the cockpit. After that we were nearly becalmed for a bit, then got the wind and it was a beam reach most of the way, flying the cruising chute for a couple of days until wind and sea got up more and white sails were enough. We have just 48 hours here so trying to get everything done, then see a bit of the island before we sail on to Cocos Keeling.
