Join us on this exotic HOT BuOYS gay sailing cruise to Malaysia & Singapore! This gay sailing adventure combines the beauty of two National Parks of Borneo, the longest passage sailing across the South China Sea, a stop at a remote island, as well as the big city of Singapore. Singapore is one of the most visited cities in the world, and for good reason: from skyscraping rooftop bars to humble hawker stalls, luxurious 5-star hotels to backpacker digs, pulsating nightlife districts to sleepy ethnic enclaves, Singapore excites even the most seasoned of travelers.
Singapore is almost electrifying in its great diversity. This tiny island nation with a population about the size of Bangkok is a cultural crossroads with some of Asia's most unique architecture, dining, hotels, shopping and even (believe it or not) nocturnal diversions. Singapore is mostly open space and has hundreds of public parks and wilderness areas. Its zoo and botanical gardens are among the best in the world. If you enjoy the out of doors you can get up close and personal with nature, lah.
This is the third leg of our Philippines to Thailand gay sailing cruise and we sail from the city of Miri in Malaysia to Singapore.
Day 1 , October 16, 2018
Fly to Miri Malaysia (MYY) and take taxi to Miri Marina Yacht Club. Join us for trip to Miri Petroleum Museum. We will also check on the status of the Miri Maritime Museum and see artifacts which your captain helped recover from the South China Sea. Dinner on shore.
Captain Philip believes it is best to conduct one set of excursion trips in port. Both the crew that sailed in from Kota Kinabalu, as well as crew just joining are likely to want to go on the same excursion trips. There is a small chance that your bunk may already be occupied. If this happens, then we will look for volunteers who are willing to spend the night in the pilot house or salon bunks. If no one volunteers then a hotel room will be rented for at the ships expense. So far this situation has never occurred.
Day 2 , October 17, 2018
Optional shore trip to Niah National Park. Very large caves which were once inhabited by ancient man.
Day 3 , October 18, 2018
Provisional day and immigration check out. We may leave late in the day depending on conditions. Shore trip to Lambir Hills National Park. There are two waterfalls and one is reached by a good hike.
Day 4; Day 5 , October 19, 2018; October 20, 2018
We have about 1000 kilometers to cover on this, our longest passage of the entire trip. We are expecting pleasant downwind sailing this time of year, however, will have plenty of fuel aboard if becalmed.
Day 6 , October 21, 2018
Day at sea with overnight stop at island mid-way across South China Sea. No absolute guarantee on this stop and it will depend upon progress made during the day.
Day 7 , October 22, 2018
Another Day at Sea.
Day 8 , October 23, 2018
Estimated arrival date in Singapore.
Day 9 , October 24, 2018
Immigration check in completed and dinner at yacht club.
Day 10 , October 25, 2018
Optional shore excursions or depart for airport. You are welcome to spend the night aboard.
Usually, Captain Philip enjoys bringing his yacht to ONE 15 Marina on Sentosa Island in Singapore. This is a high end marina and perhaps the finest in all of SE Asia. It is connected to downtown Singapore via a free shuttle bus. This means this marina is convenient for quick shopping and restaurant trips. However, recently, new regulations have made it very expensive. These new regulations require yacht owners to hire an agent to do the clearing in and clearing out process.
As a result of this change, Captain Philip is offering a choice:
• We can stay at Sebana Cove Yacht Club in Johor Darul Takzim Malaysia. It is just across the river from Singapore and a short ferry and taxi ride away.
• Alternately, if enough people elect the optional $600 USD charge for ONE 15 Marina, then ONE 15 Marina it will be.
Note: If not enough people elect ONE 15 Marina, then we will go to Sebana Cove Yacht Club. If that is the case, and you paid the extra for ONE 15 Marina, then that flat fee will be refunded to you.
Join us on fourth leg of Philippines to Thailand gay sailing cruise and sail with us
From Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Notes: Before you are allowed to board a plane to Malaysia, you likely will need proof of an airplane ticket leaving Malaysia. Unfortunately, it is one of the costs today of travel by private boat and even yacht owners are not able to escape it without official letters from immigration. Suggest buying a cheap ticket on Air Asia Kota Kinabalu (BKI) to Cebu (CEB) about 6 months out. If they ask you how you intend to get to Kota Kinabalu, just say by bus. If you are not continuing on the trip after Singapore, please make your reservations to leave no sooner than October 25, 2018.
