We have left the Philippines and we went to Borneo in Malaysia. In Kota Kinabalu we stayed in a marina with lots of other boats. Kota Kinabalu was where we met Jack and Connor who lived on boats. Connor’s mum worked at a horse stable so we were able to go horse riding and help at the stables.

Kudat at the northern tip of Borneo being our first port following a long motor of some 200 miles against wind and current from Puerto Princessa via Balabac. Our rather battered Philippine courtesy flag is now replaced by a new glistening Malay one on stage two of our journey. Kudat proved a fine bolt hole from which to hide out of some foul weather sucked up by one of the typhoons passing north.
