SV Heavy Metal8º 24.04' N,82º 26.57' WWe are leaving Bocas del Toro today. We will probably stop in San Andres or Providencia along the way to wait for the next weather window. Then its off to Isla Mujeres MX then Florida. All is well on Heavy Metal. Love Rigo, Deborah, Zyon and Hunter. (PS-Don't trust the Farkwar location)
Penny Lane12º 9.23' N,68º 16.76' W3 nights (465 miles) downwind from Bequia to Bonaire, one of the best dive spots in the world. This is a nice friendly, Dutch island, with a dive site on to the Coral Reef every few yards. Anna flew back to the UK for a few days leaving Sam and I here, catching up on school and work, and enjoying the occasional dive.
Shawnigan9º 42.43' N,84º 39.77' WPunta Leona, Costa Rica
Nomi24º 9.41' N,110º 19.49' WFinally made La Paz, after a half-successful attempt landed us in Los Frailes waiting out rough weather for several days. We had the bad luck to beat upwind going north for a couple days out of Los Frailes, only to find the wind shifted when we turned south into Bahía de La Paz so we were *still* going upwind!

Sea Monkey 6º 21.44' N,99º 40.61' EWell we arrived in Langkawi. I think we broke a record as well. We did a whopping 120nm ( approx. 230km) in 47 hours. That's an average of about 2.5kn or nearly 5 km/h. Don't worry we didn't get the speed wobbles. In fact at stages we where becalmed so out in the middle of the ocean with no land in sight the kids and I decided it was high time for a swim. We did plenty of jumping off the front of the boat and getting back on again at the back. With no engine it was very peaceful and relaxing but we did have to concentrate as when the boat was moving we needed to make sure it kept moving and in the right direction. When we where only 16 nm from getting to Langkawi we ran out of wind again and starting drifting backwards towards an island. We through out the anchor for a few hours until there was a bit more wind again and kept going. The final 16nm took us another 8.5 hours. We ended up hiring a car and going over to Kuah and doing our check in, this is the simplest and cheapest place to check in anywhere in Asia so far and can all be done in less than an hour. Today we took along walk up the hill to a fantastic waterfall with great rock pools and rock slides. We had a ball and then came back and chilled out.

But we are persevering and enjoying the experience. Love to all.
