We leave the Togean archipelago, simply one of the most spectacular places we have visited since we went full-time into this cruising life 16 years ago. So now, as we headed south, we had to find safe anchorages in the spectacular Gulf of Tomini.
In a place with no pilot or cruising guide, and less than a handful of tentative anchorages marked on the charts, we would be using all our skills. The harbours and bays looked great, but the depths were alarming.
This seldom-visited area isn’t on any regular sailing passage, so there was no-one to advise or help us with a route through the uninhabited islands and islets.
In the vlog (see link below) we demonstrate how we decide which route to take and where to anchor in such isolated places.
With capricious winds and currents, we needed all our skills and experience to find a safe place to drop the hook in this remote area of the world.
As you will see in the video, we are the only boat at anchor for literally hundreds of miles. Watch the full episode here…
Thank you.Everything we do we do for free, but if you would like to help us out, please consider...
