I had little to talk about yesterday or today and have slacked off on the posting but I felt I should share a disappointment I felt today.
We have been sailing North all day between Malaysia and the South East Asia coast towards the Equator (which we crossed mid-afternoon) on an ocean as calm as a millpond. At about 4pm I became aware that we were surrounded by garbage! For the next 2 hours we sailed through a surface covered in every kind of floating debris including areas of oily gunk. Absolutely terrible and so sad.
I hope we do a better job in our hemisphere?
