Huge apologies for our absence over the past few weeks. But now we’re back after plenty of sailing, passage-making and anchoring around the eastern tip of Borneo and we’re ready to rock.
The rally was so intense and loaded with stuff to do and things to see that we didn’t have time to get any editing done. But we took masses of footage and can’t wait to share it with you.
We are immensely lucky to have had the opportunity to get out and explore such an exciting part of the world during these difficult times of closed borders. So far, Malaysia has been kind to us in allowing sailboats and crew to stay here without visas. The latest RMCO (Recovery Movement Control Order) finishes 31st December and we are hoping the government will extend the same courtesy until it finishes.
After too many cocktails at ‘Secret Place’, the best beach bar in Sabah, it was an early start to sail round the tip of Borneo and hook up with the rest of the Sail Malaysia rally boats in Kudat. Here we learned about the birds and the bees of Borneo, and tried to remember where to put the lines when we Med-moored for the first time in 10 years.
A whistle-stop tour through that beautiful part of the island of Borneo took in some amazing sights including local community artisans, a traditional Rungus long house, wild honey production, the secrets behind birds nest soup, lunch at a stunning home stay with the owner and a sunset where the Sulu and Celebes seas meet at the tip of Borneo.
Then it was time to start the rally proper and work out how to untie those lines from the Med mooring anchorage…
