Best and worst of 2013

March 20, 2014

Best and worst of 2013

Best anchorage – Ko Muk – scenic anchorage and incredible hong to visit early before the hordes arrive
Worst anchorage – Patong due to sewer smells – this is not a scratch and sniff blog
Best special event – New Years Eve in Patong, Thailand – perhaps next year I will be better prepared and provide some photos of the most amazing fireworks display – see Fireworks Video 

Most memorable sailing experience – entering and sailing through the Singapore Straits at night!
Best food – Thai food

Beautifully decorated always

Granted - unusual ingredients but if you're open to something different then who knows.  You may enjoy

Best restaurant – The Spice Room at the Imperial Hotel in Delhi

The Spice Room - awesomely decorated and the food to die for

Best drink – Singapore sling at Raffles Hotel. Must sit at the bar and tell him/her that you want to watch them make the drink

Best Yacht Club – Ao Chalong Yacht Club

Best Marina – 115 Marina, Singapore

Best boatyard stairs – Bousteads (AKA Wavemasters in Langkawi)

Best guest – Sandy Draper. She was a real trooper. For 5 days out of a two week vacation she survived the worst sailing weather in 2013. It was the same storm that sank at least 12 sailboats in Thailand

As always, Sandy is up for exploration and fun!

Worst guest – cockroaches. No explanation needed here.
Best piece of new electrical equipment – air conditioner. We put this on while we were in a marina and it kept Connie from abandoning the boat and returning to Canada
Best piece of new on deck equipment – shade awning for forward deck. Made by Erya in Langkawi. Great work and an awning that is a lifesaver when out cruising the islands and in the rainy season
Worst experience – breaking the centreboard on the sail between Kuching, Borneo and Singapore
