Departure day

Southern Sun departure

It is with great sadness that we leave this morning.  All of us have bonded on this project and we can expect great things.  This last week we have spent on the 19 meter yacht, Southern Sun some of it here in the Marina Bay in Miri, Sarawak and most of it cruising in the South China Sea out to the south Laconia Shoals where the 170 year old wreck, Viscount Melbourne lie on the bottom surrounded by a horsesheo shaped reef.  It has been hard and some trying times, plagued by inclement weather and not enough time to do a proper job but I have to say, I love every minute of it.  Over the next few days I will collect my thoughts and begin recounting our journey.
