We estimated it would take about a week to Malaysia if we took day sails and anchored overnight in the lee of places you won’t find in any cruising or pilot guides.
Three or four metre waves hitting your sailboat beam-on doesn’t always make for the most comfortable of overnight passages. But we were sailing, and that’s what it’s all about!
Just yer average life at anchor next to a tropical island: boat work, beach walking, beer drinking… using a hookah (that’s hookah, not hooker!) for boat maintenance.
