Timshel - Cocos to Mauritius Day 16
More wind overnight so good progress, sunny day again. The morning radio net is much reduced, as most boats have arrived in port. There seems to be a shipping rout between Mauritius and Rodrigues, several tankers going past though only one coming close - they did eventually respond on VHF and agreed to deviate around us. The wind came more from NE so gybed onto stbd at 2330 at watch change. It does take a while to get the pole and everything changed over. We should be in on Wednesday 17 well before dark, at the moment the ETA to the waypoint is around lunchtime, then we have to motor into the port and clear customs. So this shold be the last night at sea and there is a nice half moon and stars, just about enough wind. As it is neap tides at least there should be no strong currents we make our way round the north of the island to Port Louis.
