Notes In Route

Our sail from Langkawi to Penang varied from beautiful to nasty.  It is the time of year with rain and thunder.
We arrived at Straits Quay Marina where much needed dredging was ongoing.  There is a great staff here and a well maintained facility, but the music at night from some of the restaurants is both terrible and loud!  Especially Healy Mac's Irish Pub.  Imagine over amplified, off key Irish tenors.

On the way a shackle that connected the mainsheet traveler to the mainsheet block broke.  The boom was all over the place, but we got it restrained and kept going.

While shopping for a new shackle yesterday we happened onto the famous clan jetties on Georgetown.  These are pretty neat and can be visited.
