Next stop was behind two extremely small islands called Pulau (this means island in Malay) Angsa along with local fishermen. Unfortunately we were anchored down wind of them – and OH – let me describe the smell.
First light next morning on to Port Dickson wherein we encountered a bit of “bad management”. Ian had his route plotted, however, decided to follow “Truest Passion”. Rule number one – never, ever follow someone else especially when they are a Catamaran!! China Grove was high and dry for four hours, through a storm including lightning and thunder (surprise, surprise – it is near Port Klang after all!!!) First mate Chris got so frightened when China Grove groaned and laid on her side – she jumped ship and spent an hour or so sitting in the dinghy!! No damage was done (except to Ian’s ego)!
We are now happily in the marina at Port Dickson.

The next rally function is on the 16th and 17th of May in Malacca. Ian and I will take a taxi from here and spend two nights in a hotel (Hotel Puri) as the marina at Malacca is in very shallow water – don’t want to be high and dry again anytime soon!
