Cruising Grounds

Captain’s Blog Oct 2008

In Langkawi we picked up some chemicals and re-fuelled. Our agent John took great care of us once again. Crew went for a jungle canopy excursion. The operation was run by a German, Mr. Juergen Zimmerer, who had been on the Island for 16yrs. We started with easy rope walking and principles of abseiling as well as we “trollied” over a short expanse on a wire until we got to the highlight of the trek - a wire 100mtrs long suspended up to a rainforest tree 60m tall. The ride to the top was adrenaline inducing and we got to abseil down to the ground 30m.

On the 17th we bid Langkawi goodbye and headed for Thailand, stopping for a dive at the Butang’s at Hin Takon Chet. At night we anchored at Phi Phi Island and next morning continued to Yacht haven.

Kalizma is scheduled to base herself in Phuket for the the next three months awaiting further instructions.
