With a population of 238,000,000 people … spread over 17,508 islands … you would think anyone sailing close to their shores would be swamped with people … well I did, but I wasn’t!

My impetus to sail through Indonesia came when I awoke one morning (around 0330 is the usual time) with the realization I was bored with sailing up and down the East coast of Australia.  Hence I seized on the idea of joining the `2007 Sail Indonesia Yachting Rally’ out of Darwin … destination, Singapore.  There were approximately 100 yachts leaving simultaneously and I guessed we made a spectacular sight.
