04:37.74N 073:23.90E Akirifushi Island, North Male' Atoll Wednesday 4th
Yesterday we were able to make an escape from Male' after paying some more
huge bills for repairs and official rip-off taxes.
First stop was Bodubados Island where I knew there was a fairly pleasant
resort which I previously visited with Mike and Jacqui a couple of weeks
ago. We had dinner and a few drinks in the bar with a Bob Marley clone
entertaining (it was Reggae Night). This morning we had a snorkel on their
excellent coral reef.
Then we headed north and just before dark anchored off the small uninhabited
island of Akirifushi in the northern part of North male' Atoll. We had
another snorkel in the twilight where several lobsters narrowly avoided
Tim is cooking something vegetarian as I write.
The plan now is to meet up with another boat, called 'Traveler', in Uligamu
and sail in a small convoy with them to Oman in few days time.
