Ideal Sailing time: Indonesia to Australia

I was wondering about the ideal conditions for sailing from Bali/Kupang to Darwin. I was told the best time of the year for this journey is Sept/Oct. Can anyone here confirm this? What suggestions would you have for alternative routes to Australia? Is there any ports in Indonesia that weather-permit going to Australia year round?

Re: Ideal Sailing time: Indonesia to Australia

Yep, end of the strongest Sou' Easters and before the cyclone season kicks in. The other time is right now.

Merauke-Gove? It's only 1/3 the distance of Bali-Darwin and a much better wind angle. Probably the easiest sail between the two countries.

But if you're looking to hitch a ride with someone, boats doing that trip would be few and far between
