Michael and Susan left Florida in 2007 aboard their Westsail 43 INFINI to fullfill a dream of full time cruising.
Oct 29 - Ko Lanta Yai
Pos: N07deg32.16/E099deg06.308 We re-anchored at Monkey Beach (Yangkasem Beach) at Ko Phi Phi Don and had a very rolly evening. On top of that, five of the tourist boats, you know, the kind with 3-4 big engines on the back, rafted up about 20' away from us to party! Rather than re-anchor, we kept an eye on things and figured one of them had thrown his anchor line on top of our chain anyway. At least it was a lot quieter than the main anchorage, as the many guys on those 5 boats didn't party into the wee hours! We left early this morning and only found one line fouling our anchor, and it was easy enough to get off. We then motor sailed in a nice SE breeze directly SE to Ko Lanta. Here, we've anchored in 17' directly in front of the pier about 1/4 mile off (anchorage 3 of the Sunsail Guide).
