No position sent.
Weather: Partly sunny, warm, scattered showers

Arrived into Tarempa in the Anambas Islands after motoring most of the way. Found some wind as we approached the islands! Some rally activities here tomorrow with 26 boats in attendance. Then we shall spend the next couple of weeks exploring the islands. Their communications cable has been broken so only basic internet, emails and SMS messages going through sporadically. Not sure how i?m going to cope with being offline for the next three weeks...

Have been following your stops and they all look pleasing. Am sure the latest anchorage will not let you down. Hopefully the internet will grant you access every now & then. A good place to spend your birthday Bev. Have a Happy one. Its not 60 so soon is it ??

Run: 11.9nm (21.5km)
Weather: Partly cloudy, very warm with a light breeze

Left Kuala Terengganu yesterday afternoon and have stopped at Kapas Island. Enjoying this lovely spot again and waiting a day or two for some wind to develop to take us the 215 miles to Tarempa, Anambas islands, Indonesia.

Run: 31.8nm (57.6km)
Weather: Overcast and warm

After several glorious days at Redang Island, we actually had a couple of hours sailing towards Kuala Terengganu - before the wind faded. A large city with lots to see and do in the area - could certainly spend more time here. A good spot to provision before heading off to the remote Anambas Islands on Sunday.

Run: 42.2nm (76.4km)
Weather: Partly cloudy, very warm with a light breeze

Woke up about midnight last night due to mosquitoes feasting on us. Noticed a nice breeze blowing so brought up the anchor and now we find ourselves at Redang Island. Rally events will include a visit to a turtle sanctuary, games on the beach and a high tea / reception at the Taaras Resort.

Run: 177.5nm (321.3km)
Weather: Partly cloudy, hot and sultry, scattered thunderstorms & lightening

Overnight motor/sail from Tioman Island to Kapas Island was quite pleasant until we got soaked first thing this morning. Kapas Island is quite picturesque with a few resorts & supposed to be some good snorkeling & diving. Rally get together tomorrow for a cricket game & BBQ on the beach.

Run: 97.1nm (175.8km)
Weather: Sunny and warm, scattered afternoon thunderstorms & lightening

Arrived into Tioman Island first thing in the morning after an overnight motor / sail from Sebana Cove. Had a couple of thunderstorms with lightening and heavy rain along the way. Lost the AIS for about a half hour but thankfully it recovered.

Say G'day to Tioman for me - we visited and camped on the beach many times whilst living in Singapore. Good snorkelling I remember ....

Looks like a nice spot but you can’t beat Winnipeg in May with the Jets on a Stanley Cup run.

Run: 34.9nm (63.2km)
Weather: Rainy

Sailed around the south side of Singapore yesterday from west to east. A bit nerve wracking at times with a couple of ships coming quite close and giving us a warning honk. Hundreds of ships on the AIS making the screen too cluttered to be helpful so needed to keep a close lookout. Many ships at anchor and hard to differentiate the ones coming at you compared to the ones just sitting. Now we are at a quiet marina resort several miles up a river called Sebana Cove. It was built many years ago to be a gambling get away for the Singaporeans - then Singapore legalised gambling.

Run: 286nm (517.7km)
Weather: Pleasant sunny days with afternoon thunderstorms

Caught a large plastic tarp in one of the props near Pangkor Island and Bob went for a swim to untangle. The rest of the two day motorsail from Pangkor Marina to Puteri Marina was pleasant and uneventful. A bit nerve wracking going under the Johor-Singapore Second Link Bridge with its 25m clearance. Made it into Puteri just before an afternoon thunderstorm. We are here for the official start to the Sail Malaysia - Passage to the East Rally.

Run: 153.5nm (277.8km)

Arrived back to Pangkor in time to score the last available berth in the marina and attend the rally dinner / briefing. Good to catch up with many from our Sail 2 Indonesia rally. 38 boats registered so far in the Sail Malaysia - Passage to the East rally. Shall be here a few days. Time for the engines first oil change and also installing a new trampoline.

Arrived into Chalong Bay, Phuket last Friday after a pleasant 3 day motor & sail from Langkawi. New motors working great !! Since then have caught up with several of our Sail 2 Indonesia & Malaysia mates in Nai Harn Bay, done a few dives on Koh Racha Yai and now anchored on the S side of Koh Hi. Shall head north into Phang Nga Bay tomorrow and visit some 'hongs'.

Had a great overnight sail from Pangkor up to Langkawi. Didn't get much of a chance to test out our new engines - but they'll be plenty more opportunities for that !!
