Another clear sunny day spent clawing our way south towards Lombok and our destination of Gili Island. This is my third time sailing through these waters aboard Argo. Both previous times though we sailed north towards Borneo with descent winds and seas. Now we are traveling south and fighting for every mile we get, against head winds and a stiff apposing current. This has without a doubt made things more difficult pitching constantly in the rough seas. But if it was easy anyone could do it. Upon reaching Gili this crew will already have over 1000 nautical miles and an equator crossing in their wake. At the end of a journey one can take pride in the completion of a difficult task.
