Sailing the Sulu Sea

Alishan spent a few days at anchor in Kudat. Did it rain those days! And wow, on top of that, heaps of thunder and lightning. We thought we had left that scary stuff behind us at Singapore.
But in between all those downpours we indeed had some good quality time with Aslaug and Kari of sy Lady Ann. Thanx guys for showing us around town.
Even managed to do some shopping. (fruit, veggies, bread and ....fuel).
Monday morning we woke up with a blue sky, so it was time to move on and....
We had a good trip over the Sulu Sea (3 days). Of course the little wind we had was on the nose, this time it came from SE. Mind you the conditions were good enough to do some varnishing ;-))

Alishan is now at anchor in Sandakan.
5 degree 50.4N
118 degree 07.4E
The town looks good for a few days, we hope to make some short inland trips to some national parks around here, but then ASAP we want to move on to the Kinabatanga River.
Get the camera ready!
