Yes we did get away from Sutera Harbor Marina.
Not easy at all as it's so nice to be there. Just the whole set-up, the swimming pool, good showers, gym, good marina and very very friendly people all around us. Staff and visitors.
And of course there is the mountain , very special for all the birds and the hiking.
BTW did you enjoy Marijke's latest pictures at our HP?
Anyway, Alishan is now at anchor in front of Kudat Town:
6 degree 52.3N
116 degree 50.6 E
The trip took 3 days, ( we stopped at 2 very nice bays with great views on mount Kinabalu) and it was mostly motor sailing into N-wind ( as in: on the Nose) and boy were we happy to be here. When we rounded the Top of Borneo, only 5 minutes later the sky came down with solid rain and even stronger ENE winds. Zero visibility!
In the next few days we will see what Kudat can offer us.
Oh yes our good friends o/b Lady Ann are here on the hard stand for boat repairs. We gonna have to give them some moral support.
But soon we will be heading further east towards Sandakan.
