Hebe Haven Yacht Club as seen from space. This photo was made before the marina was completed. The swing moorings are clearly seen all over the bay in front of the Yacht Club. Two large barges are anchored where the marina has now been built.

Excellent crewman Mr. Tom Stone at the winch, and below are moments from the sail to Thailand from Hong Kong. I think the expressions on everyones faces tell the tale. Fair winds......and a bit of rain. It was almost perfect!
