Kuchierabu-shima 口永良部島

Hello from Kuchierabu. Although we were aiming for Yakushima yesterday, we were rebuffed by strong winds. But we were able to use those in combination with the strong currents to progress north towards Kuchierabu, which actually turns out to be a shortcut for us! So we were lucky again. The traverse took 11 hours which is still quite fast considering that we did not take the direct route at all. Today, we are speculating whether to go to Ioujima or to stay a day. The weather outlook looks okay so either seems good. But vacation time is growing short...
