6° 55.7' N 125° 43.5' E 27 Jul 2014 08:03 16.0 0.0 0 After more motoring and more sailing with a reef in the main dropped the hook E Talikud Is. There are many Fish Attracting Devices (FAD's) in the Davao gulf and quite lot of shipping so sailing at night with no moon can be risky - although having AIS is a great help to see what the ships are doing on the chart. We drifted a couple hours with the drogue out once a few miles north of the Cape to wait for daylight - interested bankas woke us. Last stop before home.

9° 34.69' N 125° 55.73' E 24 Jul 2014 09:28 30.0 0.0 0 Moved to Surigao township alongside Elizabeth Jane for planning over coffee. They had just done overnighter so planning rest day. After coffee we left through Hinatuan Passage reaching 11.5 kts SOG - about 5 kt current. Then passed south of Hinatuan Island where all the ore ships were being loaded from barges and the crews waved happily at us. On to Bucas Grande into Karin Bay near where we have previously dropped the hook.
