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.
In the remote islands of Batu, we discovered just how faulty our charts are as we navigated between narrow channels and rocks, passing over land and across reefs.
Are we the problem? Should we keep the remote places we find a secret to protect them? Some say we should, some say we shouldn’t…Get ready, Jamie is in rant mode and he lets it all out in this week’s Q&A!
The truth about seasickness. What causes seasickness? What is the best cure? We have the answers!
