|This page shows my personal view of being a crew member on the Yacht Sundowner in 1975.|
|I signed on to the Yacht Sundowner after seeing a bulletin board advertisement at the Denpasar Bali Post Office That lead to my taking two months getting to Singapore instead of my originally planned two days.|
Rod Montgomery and his new wife Brenda owned the 34 foot long yawl.
We killed time on Lombok Island and Java waiting for the seasonal monsoon winds to change. That never seemed to happen that spring.
From Popoh Harbour to Singapore took more than two weeks.
We never got more than 50 miles from land and were constantly fighting adverse currents and winds.
We sailed through the Bangka Strait and across the equator to the chaos of Singapore.
