SAILING! TO NAI HARN BAY,THAILAND ,with SOPHIE,29jan,2013

Sophie one or daughters flew in yesterday,to travel with us for 2 months,.she is having a year off uni.it is so nice to have her with us on Haven.
we got a taxi down to au chalong in the morning to check out of thailand.muzza was still finnishing the canvas work,and our Yanmar engine spares arrived,and david the rigger put clutch on mast for our new topping lift.At 1 pm we fueled and then departed with pilots on falling tide,on the tortuous path out thru the mangroves and shallow bay,with depth alarm going off all the time as only 0.7 m under keel.once in deep water we hoisted sail and had a lovely time sailing south and around to Nai Harn Bay on west coast of Phuket.lovely swim,and good sleep at anchorage.feels good to be back just sailing and travelling after all the boat work.off to the Similans islands tomorrow
