SV Sara B in Langkawi, Malaysia
'Sara B' is a Lello 34 that I bought in Cape Town, South Africa in 1984. Sailing seemed like an interesting way to return to the United States after I finished my Masters degree at the University of Cape Town.
After sailing from Cape Town to Florida, through the Panama Canal, across the Pacific Ocean to New Zealand and Australia I completed a PhD at the Australian National University in Canberra.
I then sailed across the Indian Ocean, up the Red Sea to Turkey, Greece, and Venice.
In Venice I decided to turn around and head east rather than west, and sailed back down the Red Sea, spending a year in India, before arriving in South East Asia.
I am now in the Telaga Harbor Marina on the island of Langkawi in Malaysia.
