When we reached Indonesia, we were met by the typical tropical weather: damp, hot and with frequent, short rainstorms.
Now we are near Borneo, and to make things worse we are in the transition period before the wet season, and the situation has worsened: last night we had a long, continuous rainstorm which left us soaking wet and very tired, because the wind-against-tide situation caused a short chop that was making us bang uncomfortably into the waves.
Now we have 2 knots of wind (!…) and all around us the clouds are preparing for the next shower…
Alas, we will have to live with this kind of weather for a few more weeks!
