As forecasted, the wind turned from the south to the north, and it rained heavily until the morning.

Although there was some sunshine, it was mostly cloudy here in Ishiaki today.

Looks like there is a huge cold front coming down to Japan, and the condition here is forecasted to be very rough…

We cruised down south to Taketomi, Kuroshima and Panari Islands today.

Although there were some swells, we saw two mantas at the cleaning station!
