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.
