Similar directions apply as for route IS52 from Mauritius. Several of those who have made this passage described it as the toughest leg of their entire voyage. It is therefore essential to prepare the boat thoroughly for this passage.

The small port of St Pierre, on the SW coast of Réunion, is a convenient point of departure.
