Position: 14º 31.8′ S 47º 37.998′ E Nosy Saba has been one rolly anchorage. We are super grateful for the flopper stopper this morning. On the up side, it is a gorgeous spot and our friends on Yemaya say it is some of the best snorkelling they have seen so far. All is well.
Position: 13º 42.702′ S 47º 54.0′ E Spent two nights at Honey River. It was a lovely anchorage. All is well
Position: 13º 30.798′ S 47º 58.002′ E We made a quick stop at the lemur island to see two new kinds of lemurs, what a treat. All is well.
Position: 13º 32.202′ S 47º 59.988′ E Today we went back to Tany Kely for a last visit with our turtle friends. The kids all went on a solo expedition to the lighthouse and we adults enjoyed a rare moment of peace and quiet. Now we are back in Russian Bay for the last time […]
Position: 13º 24.0′ S 48º 13.212′ E It’s always nice to return to a place that feels familiar. This is a mostly work stop for us, but I’m sure we will find some time to unwind too. Once we are done here, it will be mostly southbound until we cross to S. Africa. All is […]
Position: 13º 28.998′ S 48º 14.25′ E We made a day anchorage on Tany-Kely. Anyone who has said that there is no good snorkeling in Madagascar, hasn’t been here. This rivaled (though perhaps did not exceed) our Lizard Island snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. I was gifted an unexpected deep free-dive with a sea […]
Position: 13º 24.792′ S 48º 20.292′ E Lokbe – Nosy Be: This anchorage was a bit of a lark. We were only 5 nm away, which was a bit too close to feel like a real effort, but it was reputed to have a great guided nature walk. We were not disappointed. The anchorage was […]
Position: 13º 26.472′ S 48º 21.042′ E At Nosy Komba. The early shore party reports a very interesting village with houses built into the rocks, fantastic local art and crafts and a funky welcoming atmosphere. I’m really looking forward to the lemur tour today. All is well!
Position: 13º 43.5′ S 48º 11.328′ E Another ideal day sail bright us to the anchorage at Nosy Manolo (Munoko). The anchorage is quiet and picturesque but there was a weird tidal slop in the middle of the night. We are taking about a beach barbeque tonight. All is well.
Position: 13º 34.512′ S 48º 5.748′ E We had a relaxing daysail from Russian Bay to Nosy Kisimany today. The wind was behind us the whole way at about 10 knots and our newly cleaned bottom facilitated 7 knots with dinghy in tow. I was pretty excited about this because we had just switched the […]
