Sail Malaysia Parade of Sail under First Bridge 2017
Thursday 23rd November 2017
Well, what can I say, other than that this was a total non-event. Part of the Sail Malaysia Rally schedule, participating boats were to assemble and sail together under the Penang First Bridge at 0800 this morning in a Parade of Sail.
We were a group of five boats, ‘Indigo’, ‘Honey Moon’, ‘Betty Boop’, ‘Gambol’ and us. There was absolutely no wind, not even a tiny zephyr to sail by. In the circumstances, none of the boats particularly felt like even putting up a sail. So at 0800, our little group motored unnoticed under the bridge. Some Parade of Sail, hey? A somewhat damp squib.
The ‘Parade of Sail’ approaches the Penang First Bridge.
