Back in the water

October 28, 2012

View from the non functional Kudat Yacht Club (KYC)

We are now back in the water after 6 days of work cleaning up Sage, renewing the anti-fouling and a zillion other odd jobs to try to make Sage habitable and functional as an ocean sailing vessel.

We are in  a boat basin recently built but not officially open (many reasons for this from docks that cannot stay flat to pilings that are leaning over at 30 degrees ) and hence tying up to the dock is free which always puts a smile on sailors faces.  The yacht club building is fantastic but it has no water and no electricity as the contractor and owner have not signed off due to lack of completion. How long will that take is anyones guess.

Here, we share the anchorage with the following boat people:

1 Italian, 1 Italian German, 2 Brits, 6 Australians, 3 French, 4 Americans, 6 Malaysian (fish and cargo boats) and the Malaysian military.

It makes for quite the collection and was a great combination for Halloween antics and a party at the local resort.

    With the pilings leaning at 30 d, no need to drink any longer ! Could be confusing for older sailors ! Enjoy, oh don’t sign up for military duty.
