For boats

Wini is a small village on N cost of Timor Island (population of 2.000)  


Approach is easy. Watch on small reef patch close to the harour. There is a tall green tower with green light standing in the middle of the reef. Approximate position of the reef:
09 10.422S and 124 29.494E
Anchoring is not easy, because acceptable depths are close to the shore. I recommend to drop the anchor from the bow, release as long as possible anchor chain and tie long line to the tree on the beach,
We did it on position
09 10.642S and 124 29.838E (27 meters, sand, good holding
Be ready for afternoon breeze from N, which makes staying roll and uncomfortable. I don’t like that anchorage, you need to be “on watch” all the time.
Just on the beach. You can tie the dinghy to the tree or fence.
Hard to get, ask locals
Ask in small resort (yellow building on the beach, a little E from the anchorage (about 100m)
Telekom Simcard / internet working well.
Only small groceries with limited products and small local market offering vegetables and fruits
Sail Indonesia Rally visited Wini first time in 2017.

For crews

The village of Wini is not big but very stretch. When you leave the dinghy and cross the beach you will be on the main road. You can go both direction. On the left you will find few shops, 2-3 small restaurants, and small resort.  
On the right you will cross 2-3 bridges, and that you will pass next few groceries and restaurants, finally you will get a small local market with vegetables and fruits. That’s it.
During the rally they organize very nice trip to the traditional village in the mountains. 3 hours one way by bus, but it’s worth.
