Akuseki-jima 悪石島

Well, here we are at Akuseki-jima, after an unusually fast 6.5h traverse of 37km. The wind and current were both behind us, and the sea was relatively calm too! What luck! Well, we already made a new friend who is taking us around the island in his truck, so we can't spend too much time here. Just wanted to let everyone know that we arrived in one piece after this much anticipated traverse.
We`ll be heading out first thing tomorrow.

今日午後三時頃悪石島に着きました。37キロ難しそうな横断は逆に簡単だった。6時間半で早かった!追い風とおい流れで、海も比較的に落ちづいて、ラクラクだった。今、やさしい地元の人に島を案内するから、長い文章書けない。ただ、みんなにここに着いたのお知らせ。明日は諏訪瀬島行く予定です。

  • was a tad worried about you since I've not received a SPOT message for 36 hours. Anything wrong with the device?
