805 NAUTICAL MILES DOWN!
Simpson’s Donkey has made it safely to Pulau Bawean!
805 nautical miles from Singapore; Axe and Charlie have made it safely to the little island in the middle of the Java Sea and once again had a very special welcome from the locals! The guys are in great spirits and still in one piece!
Pulau Bawean is an island dominated by an extinct volcano, Gunung Tinggi, with its centre rising 655m above sea level, this sleeping giant has provided a spectacular scenery and has been a very welcome change from endless miles of ocean!
Once the guys have had a well deserved rest and a decent sleep, before boarding Simpson’s Donkey and make an attempt to get to Bali – a challenge in itself with the monsoon currents and definitely not a forgone conclusion that they can make it.
Stay tuned for more updates but in the meantime check out some snaps from their arrival to Pulau Bawean!
