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.
June 25 - Mahajamba Bay, Point Ambararata
E047deg02.535min. Early morning the wind was howling, and it we figured it'd be a real hassle to launch the dinghy and outboard to go to the beach to spot lemurs. By 1000 hours, we felt it was a bit late for critter encounters, so decided to up-anchor and sail south. We're glad we did; winds settled down to 15-20 knots, and we had a beautiful sail, anchoring at 1500 hours. This is a protected spot for winds from NNE thru SSW, and we found 36' close to shore. Pic: The coastline was interesting; sand dunes and cliff formations.
