We sailed overnight from Bawean to Karimunjawa. The trip took us 26 hours to cover 145 nautical miles. We mostly motor sailed and motored. Some sailing was had only when squalls hung around and kicked up some wind.

The anchorage is exposed to the West, but has a little reef for some protection. Here we went ashore and had pizza which was very good. The town here is quite large. The streets are clean and there is loads of locals about. Before dinner we enjoyed a cold Bintang at a marvelous place on the water in superb settings.
Karimun has a good ferry service to Java if need be. While we were here a passenger ferry came in, well it anchored a fair way out and they pick up and drop off their passengers via the little run abouts.
