Thanks everyone - we arrived safely in KK and had a great trip: We passed south of the Anambas Islands and north of Bunguran Island as we were expecting a bit more favorable winds further north. We headed straight east afterwards and then a bit up north to KK. It took us 7 days, but we did have the engine running for most of the time...
No major incident apart from a engine overheat and a couple fuel filters blocked. We were called on VHF by vessel "TEKINIK NIRVANA" which requested we change course somewhere around the Luconia oil fields - because they had a 9km long tow for seismic research....
Ran into a heavy coastal thunderstorm just off KK.
We are now planning to sail on to Kudat to have some work done there on the shipyard. Has anyone heard anything about it?
