Cruising the Philippines

Recommended Posts


If making longer passages i.e across the Celebes sea/Moro Gulf  - Indonesia to Philippines extreme care must be taken regarding uncharted floating fishing buoys/stations  - these are sometimes manned but are also unmanned and unlit.They varying from a few sq metres to a floating island capable of mooring upto 10 Fishing boats.


Within the islands be very careful at night for stationary unlit fishing bancas and their drift nets, sometimes several kms long. My crew regard them as being such a hazard to navigation they do not like to sail at night, instead to anchor near an island around late afternoon, shoot a few nets for fish for their dinner, and weigh anchor just before dawn. Suits me fine also.

Surprised. When I read the topic title I assumed ladyboys would be involved. :)
