Back tracking... heading to Sandakan

After weaving around the floating fish traps, we made our way out of Lahad Datu towards our first anchorage. Bombing again was on the menu.

Trevor attempted the NZ staple unsupervised and without sufficient training almost ending in tears when he hit the water face first.

As a joke I volunteered his services to do a talk at the local school in Tambisan. Before I knew it we had all been recruited, donning our most respectable clothes we headed over, guitar in hand to the school. Malaysia has implemented a 33-minute compulsory English reading program for kids in all schools, I think every week. Video is taken and sent to the education department to prove participation and we were lucky enough to be part of the launch.

After this the kids were invited out to the boat for a look-see. They were very impressed and we had a great morning - thanks Tambisan!


The boy’s turn to visit was a little less calm than the girls which did not impress Sloop who is used to a quieter lifestyle.
