Hope the guys on the Clippers enjoy their stay and RnR in Singapore and get ready to get beat up on their way North to Qingdao, across the Taiwan Straits.

Also loaded a Video of a Busy Fuel Dock at Telaga Harbour, Langkawi, Malaysia. The friendly guys from the Maritime Police kindly agreed not to moor up alongside my sparkling white decks, and gave me a wave as they later spluttered away.

We left Telaga Harbour, Langkawi after taking fuel and completing outward clearances and made our way up towards Phuket with an overnight stop at Koh Rok Island Group. More on that Later. Weather for the day was overcast with Ocean Swell coming from the west, which varied from half to one metre.

The next day the swell was down, but NE winds kicked in. We made a pit stop at Chalong for inward clearances and then berthed later in the day at AoPo Grand Marina, Phuket, Thailand.
