6º 16.326' N99º 43.908' EEscape VelocityAnchored off Cenang Beach for New Year’s Eve. It’s a far cry from Farm Cove in Sydney, fewer boats, louder music, and surrounded by squid boats with very bright green lights. Midnight will tell the tale — if we make it all the way — of whether the Chinese lanterns can compete with Sydney’s legendary fireworks. over 3 years  agoShow

6º 18.792' N99º 50.73' EEscape VelocityLangkawi is gorgeous, maybe not this anchorage but we have business to attend to so we’ll stay here for a bit. over 3 years  agoShow

6º 10.578' N99º 48.102' EEscape VelocityHook down in a deserted bay just before dark and before the rain. It’s been a long day. over 3 years  agoShow

5º 16.392' N100º 11.562' EEscape VelocityLong day, squalls, engine fuel filter change, adverse current. Good anchorage, though. Very peaceful so far. over 3 years  agoShow

4º 25.212' N100º 34.668' EEscape VelocityComfy overnight but SO hard to get through all the fishing nets in the morning! over 3 years  agoShow

4º 12.666' N100º 35.646' EEscape VelocityFairly painless overnight to Pangkor. Not a great anchorage and no room in the marina so not as fab as Port Dickson. Squalls on the way, happy hour at 4pm.over 3 years  agoShow

2º 28.572' N101º 50.754' EEscape VelocityWe’re tied up safely at a small marina after a crazy night when a violent squall ripped through the anchorage at Melaka. All the boats dragged. Most chose to move on. We reanchored and spent the rest of the night waiting for the seas to subside and for sunrise. Whew!over 3 years  agoShow

2º 10.932' N102º 14.268' EEscape VelocityWe are anchored in the historic port of Melaka/Malacca, a UNESCO World Heritage site. We’re looking forward to exploring! (And ice cream.)over 3 years  agoShow

2º 7.368' N102º 19.584' EEscape VelocityWhew! Long day! Seventy plus miles, only possible because of a favorable current. Anchored behind Besar Island with a robust muezzin ashore and a frequent wake from a speedboat. Can we sleep through this? almost 4 years  agoShow

1º 27.702' N103º 15.774' EEscape VelocityLight headwinds, countercurrents, burning too much fossil fuel. Yep, we’re in the Malacca Strait. Today begins our northward slog toward Thailand. almost 4 years  agoShow

1º 25.08' N103º 39.462' EEscape VelocityNew country! We’re now in Malaysia for a while, enjoying new people, signs in English, and looking forward to moving more north for cooler weather. almost 4 years  agoShow

1º 11.766' N104º 5.79' EEscape VelocityWe’re tied up at a marina for the first time since Cairns. It feels weird, but tomorrow we take the ferry to Singapore for a couple of days of culture shock. I’m ready! almost 4 years  agoShow

0º 28.116' N104º 26.79' EEscape VelocityWe are well into the Northern Hemisphere now. No need for fleece or socks yet but I do feel right side up for the first time in 3-1/2 years. almost 4 years  agoShow

0º 0.264' N104º 29.94' EEscape VelocityWe’re at the equator! Luckily it’s overcast and a bit spritzy so not so damn hot. There’s a monument ashore that we’ll try to get to, along with the new shellbacks on Henrietta, anchored nearby. almost 4 years  agoShow

0º 19.17' S104º 28.05' EEscape VelocityA not too bad day of motorsailing but now we’re in a wretched anchorage, one of the few remaining rally stops. Too deep, too much current, besieged by little kids in canoes wanting handouts. All we want is to top up the phone/internet and buy some fresh fruit and veg and we’re outta here. The struggle is real. almost 4 years  agoShow

1º 9.252' S105º 17.97' EEscape VelocityWe’re avoiding nighttime travel as much as we can because of the many fishing boats, nets, FADs and platforms that require our constant attention. So it’s short day hops, and sadly mostly motoring in no wind. Too much fossil fuel, too loud, too slow. But that’s life in the slow lane. almost 4 years  agoShow

1º 30.594' S105º 52.782' EEscape VelocityWe bailed out of the official rally stop anchorage after a beastly rolly night. No one was interested in launching their dinghies and landing, as one cruiser said, like Normandy or Gallipoli without the bullets. No thanks. We up-anchored and hightailed it 35 miles north to a nice calm, although empty, bay, along with 7 other boats, the Runaway Fleet. We’ll miss the official rally activities but at least we won’t have to swim ashore through the surf. almost 4 years  agoShow

1º 53.136' S106º 10.5' EEscape VelocityVery rolly anchorage, but an official rally stop. Not many boats have launched their dinghies, and we’re reluctant to do so too. almost 4 years  agoShow

2º 24.39' S107º 4.254' EEscape VelocityVery nice overnight stop to avoid sailing in the dark through masses of squid boats.almost 4 years  agoShow

2º 33.264' S107º 40.668' EEscape VelocitySad goodbye to Borneo but here we are now on the island of Belitung. Hook down just before the sun. We’ll explore tomorrow. almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 21.6' S116º 7.812' EEscape VelocityAhhhhhh. Finally a peaceful night at anchor and no early start tomorrow. Looking forward to sleeping in for a change. almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 18.114' S116º 40.098' EEscape VelocityWhat a wild ride across the strait to Lombok! Now safely anchored with 10 other boats watching the sun disappear behind the tall mountains of Lombok. Tomorrow one last slog to the official rally stop on the other side of Lombok. almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 8.436' S117º 46.032' EEscape VelocityFantastic sailing for half the day, then frustrating motorsailing for the other half. Now anchored in a quiet bay with just a little swell rolling in. Ever westward we go. almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 17.622' S118º 55.914' EEscape VelocityShort day but motoring. This begins the slog to Lombok. almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 26.844' S119º 27.024' EEscape VelocityAfter visiting the Komodo Park and seeing dragons, monkeys, deer and buffalo, we sailed about 29 miles to this deserted anchorage surrounded by steep brown hills and empty beaches. Nice. almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 30.978' S119º 52.068' EEscape VelocityBright lights, big city. Pizza! Ice cream!almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 22.038' S120º 0.954' EEscape VelocityWe’re all alone anchored off Gili Bodo island watching monkeys forage on the beach. Too far away for photos and no long lenses, but fun to watch as the sun goes down. Tomorrow it’s the big city, Labuan Bajo. almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 17.526' S120º 35.646' EEscape VelocityAnother no wind day brought us to Lingeh Bay for a quick overnight. The weather is sunny and hot but we’re tired of motoring. almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 23.49' S121º 0.108' EEscape VelocityThis anchorage promised abundant wildlife but we didn’t see any. Still, it’s a beautiful and sheltered place to spend a night. Westward, ho! almost 4 years  agoShow

8º 27.63' S121º 56.64' EEscape VelocityAfter a passage that was mostly perfect sailing but ended up with hours of motoring when the wind died, we arrived at Flores island in a quiet overnight anchorage just as the sun faded. We’ll continue west tomorrow maybe. almost 4 years  agoShow

5º 31.218' S122º 50.79' EEscape VelocityWe’ve arrived at Pasarwajo on the island of Buton, where there is supposed to be traditional dancing in a few days. We picked up a mooring and we’re enjoying a fruit smoothie in the cockpit under sunny skies and a cool breeze. almost 4 years  agoShow

5º 19.728' S123º 32.082' EEscape VelocityArrived at Wangi Wangi in time for my birthday. Very enthusiastic muezzin greeting the day — at 4:10am. almost 4 years  agoShow

3º 42.762' S126º 23.946' EEscape VelocityWe’ve arrived at a tiny anchorage where 22 boats are already well positioned. We shoehorned EV at the front of the pack with the best view, but ashore the ubiquitous distorted speakers are blasting pop music that echoes off the high surrounding mountains. Sleep? What’s that?about 4 years  agoShow

4º 31.464' S129º 53.622' EEscape VelocityWe’ve arrived at the top spot on Jack’s bucket list, the legendary Spice Islands in the Banda Sea. about 4 years  agoShow

5º 44.892' S132º 40.872' EEscape VelocityDropped anchor just after 5pm. Had to wait until the next day for biosecurity, customs and immigration. We’re finally legal and free to move about. Now we need local currency and fruit! about 4 years  agoShow

9º 28.728' S135º 35.892' EEscape VelocityDay four with a couple more days to go. Another nice day but difficult to make our intended course because of seastate. Can’t complain, though. about 4 years  agoShow

10º 35.67' S142º 14.52' EEscape VelocityWe have rounded Cape York and reached Thursday Island. Well, Horn Island, actually, which has a better anchorage. There are lots of boats here that we know, and most are joining one of the Indo rallies. More adventures await!about 4 years  agoShow

10º 58.116' S142º 40.71' EEscape VelocityToday was our last long push before rounding Cape York. It was a miserable day, many squalls with high winds and rain, big seas and a long way to go which made us stress about arriving by dark. To top it off we had to cross a river bar with the wind and seas across the beam. We’re anchored now in Escape River (a fitting place for us) and here we’ll stay until the forces of nature sit down and shut up. about 4 years  agoShow

11º 53.58' S143º 4.782' EEscape VelocityAfter a pretty good day of sailing the wind piped up just as we anchored and now we’re rocking and rolling but secure for the night, and maybe tomorrow too. The northward slog continues but we’re gaining on it. about 4 years  agoShow

12º 35.562' S143º 24.51' EEscape VelocityAnother slog northward with barely enough wind to keep moving, but the day was entertaining as we sailed in company with two beautiful Oysters on their Round the World rally. about 4 years  agoShow

13º 29.544' S143º 43.266' EEscape VelocityA long virtually windless day until 11 miles to our destination when wham! 20 kts from a bizarre direction. Good thing we left the decorative sails up even when our wind dropped to 2 kts earlier. So we flew into Morris Island, a spit so small it hardly warrants the name. But miraculously it’s calm here, even with the wind. Tomorrow’s another long one. We’re racing bad weather and a calendar deadline. Two big no-no’s in sailing. about 4 years  agoShow

14º 10.626' S144º 13.806' EEscape VelocityA little of this, a little of that. Beautiful sailing for half the day, hand steering in strong wind and steep chop for the other half. Now snug at anchor, small breakage fixed, dinner in the oven, wine in hand. Just need some internet and world news and we’d be perfect. Ah well, you can’t have everything. The sun’s about to set on one of our few remaining days in Oz. Bittersweet. about 4 years  agoShow

14º 20.796' S144º 35.814' EEscape VelocityCrappy day, windy, rainy, choppy seas. And now a rolly anchorage to boot. Thanks, Australia. about 4 years  agoShow

15º 27.582' S145º 15.0' EEscape VelocityCooktown! It’s pretty exciting to be in the same place as the great navigator and we marvel at his accomplishments. It’s a tight and shallow anchorage but we hope to spend a few days here enjoying our last outpost in Australia. about 4 years  agoShow

15º 43.824' S145º 27.366' EEscape VelocitySurisingly comfortable park mooring in strong winds with no visible protection but sheltered from the swell. Squally morning delayed our departure. about 4 years  agoShow

16º 22.854' S145º 33.786' EEscape VelocityIt’s the winter solstice and we’re continuing our journey to the top of Australia. Lovely anchorage at the Low Isles after a nice sail. It’s a little rolly but comfortable enough for an overnight. Tomorrow we forge ahead. about 4 years  agoShow

16º 55.134' S145º 46.86' EEscape VelocityCairns! Big milestone, even though there’s still a long way to go. We have a lot of work to do, but it’s nice to be in a town with restaurants, bars, shops, markets. Woo-hoo! about 4 years  agoShow

16º 55.95' S145º 59.07' EEscape VelocityWe’re at Fitzroy Island, just around the corner from Cairns, finally! What an absolute slog this has been. Today we had a beautiful sail for all of 45 minutes, then no useable wind for the rest of the day. All afternoon we had less than 2 kts. Unbelievable. I had all the fuel burning and engine hours. about 4 years  agoShow

17º 55.968' S146º 8.244' EEscape VelocityWe fully intended to go overnight but the wind was up and down, sails up and down, then the unending thrum of the engine, feh. We bailed and came to Dunk Island for an overnight rest and the hope for wind tomorrow, although it doesn’t look good. about 4 years  agoShow

18º 35.766' S146º 29.232' EEscape VelocityFrustrating day. Wind up and down, seas up and down. Last few hours perfect, though, and we picked up a park mooring at Orpheus Island. Too cold to snorkel or kayak. Why is it so cold??about 4 years  agoShow

19º 7.176' S146º 51.756' EEscape VelocityMagnetic Island! Finally, we made it to one of our anticipated destinations. Good sailing the past few days, although last night’s anchorage turned out to be a rolly mess. I’m hoping for a good night’s sleep tonight. about 4 years  agoShow

19º 18.342' S147º 22.788' EEscape VelocityHad about three hours of glorious sailing, then the wind completely disappeared and it was back to motoring again. Feh. Inch by inch. about 4 years  agoShow

19º 43.71' S147º 45.324' EEscape VelocityQuickie overnight stop on the way to Magnetic Island. about 4 years  agoShow

20º 4.11' S148º 26.214' EEscape VelocityAnother no wind day but we don’t have the luxury to wait for wind. Did a slow motor to Gloucester Pt., hoping for better wind tomorrow, though it doesn’t look likely. Beautiful sunny day!about 4 years  agoShow

20º 15.594' S148º 42.936' EEscape VelocityCame to Airlie Beach to pick up mail. Did a little more provisioning. Now we’re ready to make tracks for the far north. about 4 years  agoShow

20º 30.258' S149º 2.91' EEscape VelocityBeautiful downwind sail to the Whitsundays. Now we’re tucked in to a sheltered bay for predicted 30kt wind overnight but it’s hard to imagine it coming, peaceful as it is at the moment. The sun is sinking toward the horizon, we’ve got cold beer and Jack’s about to blow the trumpet shell to mark the end of a lovely day. Wish you were here. about 4 years  agoShow

21º 6.864' S149º 13.482' EEscape VelocityTook refuge at Mackay Marina for a few days. Doing small boat chores, cooking up passage food for the freezer. Not a moment to waste, but good grief, Queensland, give us some better weather! about 4 years  agoShow

21º 29.514' S149º 54.792' EEscape VelocityAmazing anchorage. Didn’t look like much on the chart but a nice refuge from the washing machine seas. about 4 years  agoShow

21º 39.186' S150º 14.628' EEscape VelocityThe famous Middle Percy. Way too rolly for us, but did manage to get ashore briefly and bought some honey at the A-frame. about 4 years  agoShow

22º 0.816' S150º 21.834' EEscape VelocityDidn’t quite make Middle Percy. Took refuge here overnight. about 4 years  agoShow

23º 49.962' S151º 14.712' EEscape VelocityProvisioning stop before the Whitsundays and beyond. over 4 years  agoShow

27º 52.26' S153º 20.148' EEscape VelocityWaiting for diesel mechanic and hoping for easy fixes. over 4 years  agoShow

33º 50.658' S151º 7.512' EEscape VelocityUp the Parramatta River to another world. The Sydney waterways seem never ending!over 4 years  agoShow

30º 18.27' S153º 8.628' EEscape VelocityAlmost a homecoming. Picked up a mooring in Coffs Harbour after a pleasant sail from Southport, except we lost our wind about 20 miles out and had to motor sail the rest of the way. We may be stuck here for a while waiting for win to take us south. over 4 years  agoShow

27º 30.72' S153º 16.62' EEscape VelocityDropped the hook in shallow but clean Raby Bay, cooking up a last minute T-Day dinner for two with what’s on board. over 4 years  agoShow

27º 30.252' S153º 21.78' EEscape VelocityWe finally tossed off the docklines and are now anchored at Peel Island. Lovely!almost 5 years  agoShow

26º 41.388' S153º 6.858' EEscape VelocityIt wasn't fun; it wasn't pretty, but we made it over the Wide Bay Bar and back to Mooloolaba. Hello fresh fruit and ice cream! Goodbye sunny weather. :(almost 5 years  agoShow

25º 37.758' S152º 58.38' EEscape VelocityTimed the Great Sandy Straits perfectly and never had less than 8 ft. below the keel. Took a long time to get settled in Garry's anchorage because of 20+kt winds and too many boats. We're good now, but a nearby power cat had to reanchor when the tide went out and ended up snagging the ground tackle of a little sailboat behind him. Wind came up, boats collided, much consternation and untangling in the dark. We'll probably be here for a days as we wait for the wind to die down and the seas outside the Wide Bay Bar to settle before we can make our next move. It'll be our last opportunity to hike a little more of Fraser Island until next fall. almost 5 years  agoShow

25º 14.058' S153º 0.126' EEscape VelocityMoved again to get out of wind driven chop. Goodbye whales! *sniff*almost 5 years  agoShow

25º 6.66' S153º 7.38' EEscape VelocitySlowly poking down Hervey Bay, dodging whales the whole way. We're seeing 20-30 whales a day, I think. almost 5 years  agoShow

24º 45.432' S152º 23.748' EEscape VelocityGot the hook down just before dark in 20+ kts of blustery, choppy conditions after a frustrating day of much less wind than predicted. Why is it always too much or too little? almost 5 years  agoShow

23º 9.588' S150º 57.288' EEscape VelocityGreat Keppel Island, calm and peaceful after a long motor run. Time to relax. It's not much further north, but noticeably warmer and we like that!almost 5 years  agoShow

23º 46.11' S151º 18.948' EEscape VelocityStaged to go outside en route to the Keppels tomorrow. almost 5 years  agoShow

24º 1.488' S151º 44.508' EEscape VelocityBeautiful, calm Pancake Creek. When we arrived there were only a few boats here. By nightfall more than 25. But still quiet and peaceful. about 5 years  agoShow

24º 10.452' S151º 52.944' EEscape VelocityDicey entrance into 1770 and anchoring three times but we think we're settled now. It's a little more blowy than we like and not magical like Lady Musgrave but there might be fruit ashore and someplace to dispose of our trash so it's all good. about 5 years  agoShow

23º 54.138' S152º 24.18' EEscape VelocityWe're at gorgeous Lady Musgrave Island and off the grid for the time being. You can reach us through our Delorme link is you want. We're enjoying meeting up with other cruisers, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. Life is good. about 5 years  agoShow

25º 17.772' S152º 54.906' EEscape VelocityReprovisioning, laundry and waiting out some weather before the next push north. We're in T-shirts finally! about 5 years  agoShow

25º 37.716' S152º 58.398' EEscape VelocityMade it over the Wide Bay Bar in settled conditions and we're happily in a calm, quiet anchorage at another World Heritage Site, Fraser Island. Looking forward to some exploring tomorrow. about 5 years  agoShow

25º 56.55' S153º 9.84' EEscape VelocityAnother crappy day of less wind than predicted plus rain squalls. Harrumph. about 5 years  agoShow

26º 41.244' S153º 7.23' EEscape VelocityWe meant to go further today but after an exhausting sleepless night we took shelter in calm Mooloolaba. We may stay a few days to catch up on sleep and stretch our legs. about 5 years  agoShow

27º 10.08' S153º 22.194' EEscape VelocityAbsolutely the worst overnight at anchor we ever spent. It recalled our wretched passage to Tonga in violent boat motion. Neither of us got any sleep. about 5 years  agoShow

27º 26.754' S153º 5.754' EEscape VelocityOut of the marina but too late to catch the outgoing tide so anchored in the river. about 5 years  agoShow

27º 26.7' S153º 6.414' EEscape VelocityRivergate Marina for a new propeller and engine work. Nice folks but NO BAR! about 5 years  agoShow

27º 28.62' S153º 1.962' EEscape VelocityMade it to Brisbane but with engine issues. Still, we're going to enjoy a little city life before continuing our journey north. about 5 years  agoShow

27º 35.292' S153º 21.168' EEscape VelocityWe're tucked up against Macleay Island after a sometimes tense motor through the narrow and often shallow channels of the Broadwater. We kissed the bottom twice, got walked by weekend powerboaters about 100 times but the sun is shining and we're just around the corner from a shopping Mecca. Life is good. about 5 years  agoShow

27º 55.878' S153º 24.888' EEscape VelocitySafely over the bar at the Southport Seaway, now anchored behind Wavebreak Island for a nice long sleep. about 5 years  agoShow

29º 24.804' S153º 21.072' EEscape VelocityWe made it to Iluka and had an uneventful bar crossing. We're now quietly anchored in the town basin and we'll wait out the predicted high winds and seas before making the final run to Southport Seaway and the inside passage to Brisbane. about 5 years  agoShow

30º 18.246' S153º 8.61' EEscape VelocityBack to Coffs Harbour where our Aussie adventure began. From here on it'll be virgin territory. Alert the authorities. about 5 years  agoShow

30º 52.794' S153º 3.702' EEscape VelocityOnce again the wind abandoned us so instead of motoring for hours we dropped the hook in Trial Bay for a quiet overnight. Saw some whale blows but far off. about 5 years  agoShow
