Michael and Susan left Florida in April 2007 aboard their Westsail 43 INFINI to fullfill a dream of full time cruising. They completed their circumnavigation in June 2017.
Jan 15 - Mai Kaho Beach
Pos: N08deg08.983min/ E098deg17.448min. We left Patong at 0800 after a night where the wind was honking and all the boats were rolling around. Our destination isn't too far away, hence the somewhat late (for us) departure. The sun finally poked out and winds were NE about 15-18, with higher gusts. Fantastic sailing! The sails finally got reefed when gusts hit 20-22 knots, the boat handled everything really well, and we had a chance to sail close by the beautiful shoreline heading north. We anchored just north of Phuket International Airport, along a stretch of sandy beach in 30' depth. Fishermen are in the distance, the jets are coming in, and we're hoping for a beautiful sunset, as west is directly behind us. Pic: Paula on Mr. John got some nice shots of Infini sailing on a starboard tack as we're heading north.
