The blog of HarryWS and my yacht Malua. We sailed Australia, the Pacific, Europe, Caribbean and USA. I built Malua in Canberra then cruised the Pacific through New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji and Vanuatu during 2004. Malua was in the Mediterranean in 2007 at the start of a cruise westwards round the world. After a trip up the French canals we crossed the Atlantic, cruised the Caribbean including Cuba. From the east coast of USA through the Panama canal to Galapagos then the wide Pacific to Australia.
This is the second Christmas Malua has hosted Denny and Harry. The last was in New Zealand in 2004. We were alone in an anchorage and it did not rain nor did the wind blow. Quite a different story from Admiralty Bay here in Bequia. The food is similar - crayfish (lobsters) glazed ham, turkey, Christmas pudding and lots of Brandy butter. (Thanks: The Southern Cross for the electric mixer and the vanilla essence).
To all our friends and others have a great Christmas time and a safe and flat water 2013.
May your sea passages be fast and your landfalls secure.
