Departing for Penang

We will leave the Pangkor Marina in about an hour (at 1100 local time) heading for the island of Penang. Today we will only go 16 nm and anchor behind Pulau Talang (Talang Island). Tomorrow we will anchor behind Pulau Rimau just to the southeast of Penang. Friday we will pass under the new bridge under construction that connects Penang to the mainland, and enter the Straits Marina on the north side of the island. It is hot and sunny and the wind seems to be right on the nose, although it is light . I think we may need to motor some of the way.
