Day 3 Passage to Cocos Keeling Island
As the wind blows we sail fast to Cocos Island but I don’t think fast enough. We still are riding out the 3 meter swells and averaging 7kts but our wind direction is not helping us. We have to jibe 20 degrees to port then jibe back 20 degrees to Starbroad losing 4 miles in each jibe. So with that in mind we will be arriving in Cocos Island around 20:00 hours tonight. But there is a chance we can still make it in time for the sunset and we will make it into the anchorage, we will see. 57 nautical miles remain.
