Day 3

We have just set off at 0730 on the 3rd day of our voyage down the Malaysian coast leaving Pangkur and heading for Port Klang .... an all day leg.

We got away Friday from Langkawi eventually, to Penang the first night.

Weather is good .. made average 9 knots all day yesterday, with a headsail up half roomates engine revs dropped from 2000 to 1700rpm
We finally have some internet the the the the which is good but we are moving away from the mainland as I write.
All 3 of us are using a Malay Sim card to provide our data .... very very cheap ... 3 gig for 30 days for less than 20 kiwi
Problem was in Langkawi, we had no cell phone coverage at Telaga Harbour, so we had to use the free wifi Various restaurants, but even that was frustrating, with the internet cutting in and out all the time.

We are still having some problems with the autopilot but Gradually we are getting to know the sophisticated systems on board.

Hope to get some more pics and videos up before we lose cell coverage

Love to all
