Sail Malaysia "Passage to Langkawi" 2012 started on Friday with a registration and welcoming session. It was good to catch up with many yacht crews we haven't seen for quite a while. Danga Bay put on some nice food and tea/coffee. Pity they don't have any clean toilets or working showers for visiting yachties!

The dinner could have been great. Great venue. Excellent food. Great dancers demonstrating local dance. Good MC. Short speeches. All spoilt completely by the audio system which was beyond loud. Think rock concert. I must be getting old, but if so I'm not alone - all the yachties we spoke to afterwards was of the same opinion.

Today we plan to depart Danga Bay at 1500, heading down the Johor Strait before anchoring overnight. Our next destination with the rally is Port Dickson, about 100nm NNW "as the crow flies" and 150nm by sea. Hopefully they have good pens, plentiful toilets and showers, and small audio amplifiers. ;)
