Arrived in Bali

Docked at Bali marina last night and will spend the next week getting ready to head west towards South Africa. Will post more detailed impressions of sailing in Indonesia in the appropriate forum where it will be easier to find for those heading this way. Just a few comments for now.
  • The scenery is striking. It is really neat to sail past a smoking volcano (there have been several).
  • The people in this part of Indonesia are the most friendly and helpful of any country that I have ever visited (perhaps 30 countries).
  • The sailing can be very frustrating with winds and currents constantly changing (and dying).
  • Anchoring in some areas is very difficult with great depths close to shore and not many spots with soft (sand or mud) bottoms.

More later.
DRFerron, Yofy and Sunday Driver like this.

Good to read all goes well. Cheers to you both.

Re: Arrived in Bali

You know I really hate you right now. Not really but I am a bit jealous.
Wish you fair winds and safe passage.

Re: Arrived in Bali

I posted some comments about Indonesian cruising in the South East Asia forum of Destinations is anyone is interested.

Almost ready to go. Heading off to do the checkout this morning. This involves hiring a taxi and visiting five (5!) different offices ranging from the Department of Foreign Affairs to the Navy. The bureaucracy in this country is truly remarkable. I had a boat stamp made and had only needed once in Ecuador. In Indonesia, I have given it a real workout. One cruiser had an embosser like law offices and this really impressed and pleased all the officials.

Re: Arrived in Bali

Good luck and look forward to following your progress. It's been 26 years since I've been in that area so I wouldn't make any recommendations except to be ready for the unexpected.
