With another sailing adventure on the horizon (from Sand Point, Alaska to Petropavlovsk Kamchatka), I again find myself full of unfinished material I’ve been meaning to publish on this blog, such as video, photos and stories from my Indian Ocean crossing. As a first step in this effort, here is some footage taken from Cocos (Keeling) to Rodrigues, a journey of 12 days and 2,007 nautical miles; roughly 3,700 km.
Early morning, fishing lines out:
One of many stunning Indian Ocean sunsets.
Sometimes you are forced to watch the sunset with the engine on…
Coming into Port Mathurin
Refuelling with the utmost efficiency
A little degustation before properly stocking up.
Rodrigues is a beautiful part of Mauritius, populated by genuinely hospitable people, which I strongly recommend to anyone wishing to escape to a paradise in middle of nowhere.
