A friend gone another back

I assumed the strong winds of the Java sea were the main challenge and we celebrated with all what our fading provisions could offer when we finished the crossing 3 days ago with only 400 nm left to Singapore. But we made the deal without Mr Current who had his own plans for us pushing Singapore a few more days away from us.

To make things even more interesting did our hydraulic autopilot decide to die and even with extreme surgery over 2 days could not be revived. However now the neclected windvane is back in action to continue our pathetic slow progress… don’t even want to think about hand steering or what may happen next.
