Throughout today we will maintain a westerly heading across the Indian Ocean towards Sri Lanka. The Indian Ocean is the third largest of the world’s oceans, covering approximately 20% of the water on the earth’s surface. It is bounded by Asia, including India after which it is named, on the north, on the west by Africa, on the east by Australia and on the south by the southern ocean.
