|Fishing village at low tide...these houses go fo miles|
This was not an easy place to anchor with the promised capacity for 100 yachts we were the 20th yacht to arrive and there was no room. Most yachts have let out a lot of anchor chain like 80-90 m so needless to say anchoring was like knitting a very fine lace. Thanks to our wonderful captain skills who performed a very delicate maneuvering action ( like getting into a tightest of tight parking spots where the other cars were secured on strings and moving with a strong wind ) and after closing my eyes for a while ( you know “what you can’t see won’t hurt you” ) we anchored leaving the closest reef about 1 1/2m behind us. The water was beautiful and clear and no rubbish. I guess we have seen enough rubbish on our way here. Loooottttttssssssssss of different things…plastic bags would have to take first place only after plastic bottles large logs (3-6m ) palm trees rats goats without feet decomposing of course dead fish…add what you want to the list.

CAPITANS NOTE A brand new way in refueling. Hire a tip truck with seven guys seventy jerry cans than explain to the truck driver where to go for fuel go to the local fuel station and just DO IT!!!!!!!!! Than of course take it back to the boats.
