Jop’s 21st birthday. Left Komodo at six AM, thus giving us a break on 4-8 watch. Very little wind today, but time not so bad. Calm sea and a couple of whales. Finished my article up to today and wonder what reaction there is about my bit on Komodo if it’s printed.

Should be in Bali in two to three days, but looks like we’ll have to motor in order to make it. Last night Kirby and I talked over some plans for our play and figure we can make a go of it with any sort of cooperation from the gang.
