Sailing Spam

I don't generally "cover" spam but I received a very interesting email from the Skiff Asia Sailing Centre in Phuket, Thailand...not your ordinary solicitation so I decided to take a look and report back. From all appearences the outfit is a "Bitter End YC" meets "J/World" with an Asian twist. One place they have Virgin Gorda beat is the exotic locale department. I've never been to Thailand but the Skiff Asia website gives a glimpse of the possibilities - beyond sailing - that exist should you make the voyage to Phuket.

"See Phuket's Buddhist Temples, take an elephant ride, tour Phuket's spas, go horse backing, scuba dive, rock climb, shop till you drop for beautiful Thai silks, jewelry and antiques. Delight in the nightlife. Taste the fabulous Thai cuisine which varies from light, mild fare for the most delicate stomach to hot, spicy dishes for the adventurous. Have an adventure!"

Yeah - I found their website too a while back. Definitely on my list of top 10 places to visit one day.

Yeah, I have a lot of "one day" places myself...

Being a more-or-less permanent BVI resident, i got a good chuckle at the suggestion that North Sound may be, perhaps, "un-exotic"... Of course, living here (as you have yourself), it gets to be the "same ol'" after awhile. Still, i'd hazard a guess that there's still quite a few folks out there, sailing or otherwise, who still think the BVI is pretty exotic! On my occasional "down" day, i try to remind myself of that... happy winter up there, fellas! :)
