November 28, 2007-Delivery to Phuket

A cruise is slower. We'd stop along the way, wait for a weather window, smell some roses.

A passage, on the other hand, is a long trip at sea away from land. You have to go non-stop because there are no stops along the way on a passage. That is the definition of a passage.

This wasn't a cruise, and it wasn't a passage; it was a delivery. We delivered the boat to Phuket for the King's Cup Regatta next week. Just get the boat there; that is all that counts.

We buddy boated with Full Metal Jacket with captain George and his crew. There were lots of ships and we stayed close together while sailing through the Straits of Malacca, but we had no major problems and none with any ships, only minor mechanical issues.

It wasn't a bad trip, but it wasn't a joy ride either. We had squals for the first 24 hours out of Singapore. Then we had calms, and the last 24 hours it was a good sail, and we arrived at Yacht Haven Marina after 4 and a half days.

So now we have the boat in Thailand, finally, and we are getting the boat ready to race here.

That is the defintion of a successful delivery.
