On our way South

Alishan left Ao Chalong this morning with a good 15 knots of wind. Almost On The Nose, of course.
But luckily, later on we could lay an other course...as we have a few options.
Right now we are heading for Ko Lanta. The morning breeze has gone and we are waiting for the afternoon sea breeze..mean while the Yanmar is making the miles.
From the Similans we had a good sail towards Phuket. EVEN managed to get 2 unlucky fish in the bucket!

Our 2nd night at Patong was veryvery little fun and lots and lots of rolling! Big heavy thunderstorms all around us. Bit scary indeed. Later we heard the sad news that only a few miles away from our anchorage a dive boat had rolled due to the heavy seas and 6 people drowned. A reminder that we have to stay alert for the sea.

BTW on our way south we passed Nai Harn Bay, where we spent Xmas with 80 other boats..now only has 7!

Oops it is HOT in here, 34 C. Time to go on deck.
