Sailing from Biak directly to Rajah Ampat takes us a bit off-piste as we ended up taking a more direct route over the top of Waigeo. Off piste and over "The Line" again......and again as Tyrii comes up with another idea, who can sail along 00, 00, 0000 longest without falling off, sounds good to … Continue reading Biak to Rajah Ampat

Team Rehua was super efficient today. We arrived in Vanimo at dawn, after a two day sail from Ninigo. Before the Indonesian Consulate opened we were already waiting at the gate. Our paperwork had been submitted before we left Kavieng so the only formality left was an interview with the Consul. Once he was satisfied … Continue reading Vanimo in a day
