Palmwoods - 26° 42' 38" S 152° 55' 02" S

When planning to bring Popeye back to Australia, we used many resources from cruising guides to websites.  Unfortunately, we were unable to find a comprehensive guide for "Sailing Thailand to Australia against The Trades".  Yachts do do it, but sensibly, most voyages are east to west!

One resource we found particularly useful was Noonsite.com.  This is a website for cruising sailors and describes itself as:

The oldest, most complete and up-to-date resource for cruisers on the web covering 197 countries and 2278 ports and growing daily.

We found articles describing voyages through Indonesia and for the most part were able to plot a course using anchorages others had experienced.  This removes significant amounts of guesswork and stress from selecting anchorages.  It is nerve-racking indeed trying to choose an anchorage off a chart, particularly when the charts are so inaccurate.

So, we decided to describe our voyage and anchorages to post on Noonsite - and here it is - click on the Noonsite logo below to have a look!
