Local knowledge

I am closing in on Beltuing, Indonesia after a frustrating multi-day transit. Reboot does not have the”legs” to motor 500 nautical miles so I sail what I get. Which has been a lot of 2.5 to 3.0 knot speeds. That adds extra days to the trip. On this approach to the island one has to navigate through some off shore reefs. Now we know the charts are not good so I picked a wide route and plotted it. As I approached I noticed a tug in front of me on the AIS. He was heading in the same general direction but picked another route. So now I am following his breadcrumbs. Fair winds and following seas 🙂
