Our 1000 nm trip from Bali to Batam only took 8 days, which included two overnight anchorages. Pictures and blogs to follow.
The weekend after arriving, we took a 45 min ferry ride to Singapore and stayed at the US Navy lodge facility and we were able to shop at the Navt Exchange (NEX). Singapore had the F1 Indy car races downtown. We took the train into town to do some shopping. Then, we thoroughly enjoyed chili crabs washed down with Tiger beer at the East Coast Seafood Center.
We decided to stay at the Nongsa Point Marina and Resort for one month. The Turi Beach Resort is where we stayed with the kids 18 yrs ago and the two resorts are connected to each other. Use the website links to see how nice these resorts are. We will cross the Malacca Straits, world's busiest shipping lane, for a quick stay in Singapore around 20 OCT. We will then go to the Danga Bay Marina at Johor Malaysia, which is the starting point for the Sail Malaysia Rally starting early NOV.
