Nov. 22, 2009-Arrival In Malaysia

Laundry Day

On Sunday, November 22, after a brief stop at Telaga Harbor to check into Malaysia, we reached Rebak Marina in Langkawi.

Rebak Marina! How long we've heard about this place from other cruisers. It is quiet and peaceful here and lots of other sailors to chat with around the Pool Bar. Here we can do small projects and relax a bit. Sherry will come here to visit, and also Mike, both from Singapore.

Going to town involves taking a small ferry boat to Langkasuka Pier and then a 20 minute drive into the bustling town of Kuah. We like Kuah Town. Wine is cheaper here than Thailand because Langkawi is a duty free port. Here in Langkawi we will await some equipment to be shipped in from overseas also duty free which is better than the 15% which must be paid for anything shipped into Thailand.

We are also going through a whole pile of laundry, mostly clothing left for three years in the storage room at Yacht Haven. Whew! It stinks. We gave away some of it but still have a pile and everything except the stuff sealed in airproof bags needs washing. The clothes washer at the marina is cheap but the dryer is slow so we hang our wash on the line. So do the neighbors.

Cruising again.
