This is our 4th attempt to get away from here. Its not that we don't love it here, its just that other cruising destinations beckon. Taipan seems to have an invisible bungie attached and we keep ending up back here for a variety of reasons. The last reason was because Jason and family were arriving for a 3 week visit from Australia and here seemed the best place to meet them hence our return in September. Now its time to go again.
Tomorrow, Sunday the 24th of October we will toss the lines off and head to Borneo via Langkawi, Penang Port Klang, Port Dixon and the Pisang group of Islands. We should be in Singapore in about 2 weeks all going to plan. The "plan" is to spend several days in One Deg 15 Marina and then head direct to Mirri or KK in Malaysian Borneo. That will be about a 4 day sail with luck. Any takers???
We have had quite a lot of unscheduled work to do for one reason or another so it will be nice to get out and go sailing. We are always sad to farewell all our good friends here. Have done so now so many times I don't think they believe we will be gone long. We certainly plan to return sometime.
