Chilling in Kerama us pretty sweet, snorkeling in beautiful coral and long beaches, truly tropical heaven.
As well, some of the heaviest rain I’ve weathered in a tent, fly shaking and new rivers pouring through the forest.
Looming ahead is the 150 kn (300 km) jump over to Ikema and Miyako Shima, which with perfect weather could take as little as 2 days and nights (sailing all the time, wind at our back), or as long as the weather decides (no wind, or worse, wind in our face).
Much debate and study during dinner where we group up and pour over the latest weather forecasts. Only a 3 day window will do! Minimum!
