Michael and Susan left Florida in 2007 aboard their Westsail 43 INFINI to fullfill a dream of full time cruising.
Dec 14 - Ko Rok Nok, Thailand
Position: N07deg12.830min/ E099deg04.108min Chris and Ann (sv Silver Girl) cast off our lines and we departed Rebak Marina with fond memories of a wonderful stop. We had gone into Kuah yesterday and did a final provisioning. A friend had told of us of a food vendor that supplied the resort trade, and we stocked up, amongst many foods, with a 4.8 kg turkey and lots of different cheeses. There was a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the resort last evening, along with food, drinks and a band. Lots of activities are planned at Rebak for the Holidays, but we decided to go to Phuket and celebrate there. The morning was overcast with winds from the ENE at 12-15 knots, what I call diesel-friendly weather (we don't have to motor!), so we made good time to our destination about 45 miles away. There are two islands here at Ko Rok Nok, part of a National Park. We'll explore another time, as we're about half way to Phuket. We had sailed across the border into Thailand about 1000 this morning; yep...this is a long way from Florida!
Pic: More changing weather...our anchorage here was nice.
