In SE Asia, sailors find all the allure of a tropical cruising paradise. Great climate, great waters, secure anchorages, and of course, affordable living, welcoming locals, and great places to get work done on your boat. It’s a magical place, so rich in new experiences ashore and afloat, you may never want to leave - as many never do. In this talk, we will take you to the main attractions, consider some do’s and don’ts, and share many stories of adventures and misadventures that will get you hooked.

Cresswell Walker and his partner Irena lived, worked and sailed extensively in SE Asia for 6 years aboard the their Oyster Lightwave 48, SV Conversations. As part of a 10-year circumnavigation, they sailed extensively between Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines, while also travelling in Viet Nam, Cambodia, China and India delivering yachts, skippering charters, and just hanging out.
