Hola!

My name is Heather and I moved to Costa Rica for scuba diving but ended up sailing Sea Bird down here from San Diego in 2008 and have been running a sailing tour company ever since! Love it down here,
Pura vida!

Singapore is home. S/E Asia will be my cruising area until I have some experience to venture further and eventually I want to circumnavigate. I have a lot of experience in blue water but only by diesel and gasoline power.

It took three years, and we just tried to stick to the usual seasonal openings. We sailed around peninsular Malaysia to Singapore, then basically worked our way up the South China and East China seas -- Borneo, the Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, wintering in South Korea, back to Japan, then crossing Osaka to Victoria. Things broke and replacement parts had to be shipped in, but otherwise amazing.

Nice! Would be interested to know what route you took, what time of year and what points of sailing you were able to maintain.

Lived in Thailand for 10 years, most of it in Bangkok working for a newspaper and a few years in Phuket working for a magazine. Bought our previous boat in Phuket in 2001, moored at the Yacht Haven and sailed her up and down the Andaman Sea Coast until pushing off in 2008 to sail home to Victoria, BC. My wife and I often talk about sailing back.

I'm in between boats right now. Looking, but, the available selection is not that great in this region. Because of the ongoing piracy issues, Thailand seems like the end of the line for many cruisers. Have you sailed these waters in the past?
