Distance run    13 nm over the ground


You can see from the daily runs that we are going nowhere far but with se decent wind we are enjoying the short sails.  Ko Dam Kwan is 3 to 4 miles from the resorts at Ao Nang, Krabi and as a result see hundreds of longtail and speed boats during the day.  IT becomes much more pleasant at about 1600 when they all leave to return to the fleshpots of Ao Nang.


I may be wrong but I think that the head has fallen off the rock that gives the island the “Chicken” name.  Flomaida anchored and looking smart


The crowds depart and peace descends for sunset drinks with Dagmar, Christoph and Mieke aboard to keep us company
