Off to new places on our way (eventually) to Komodo and Bali. For now we went with the wind and did a nice overnight (30 hour) passage to the Banda Islands where we'll spend a few days relaxing (of course!) and checking out the local scene. Banderia is the island where the spice Nutmeg came from originally (the only place in the world). Other locations that have it now took original root-stock from here. This area is known as the Spice Islands and the Dutch came here 400 years ago to bring these exotic spices back to Europe. Nice passage with all downwind sailing using our big, new A3 (worked so well we kept it up all night long too!).
