Sail Indonesia 2007 is on! When Rani and I could afford a sailboat we will definitely make an effort to participate in this rally together with many other boats. Last year only 1 Indonesian sailor participated among 95 other sailors from Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, New Zealand, Canada, UK, Vanuatu, USA and Australia. See this list from last year's rally.
It seems that Indonesians are not as keen as Westerners in exploring the archipelago. They LOVE Indonesia! What more can I say when this couple (Rob & Dee on Ventana) finally decided that after meeting so many wonderful Indonesians during rally they ended up setting a scholarship fund for needy students in Kupang. You see, sailing is not about luxury. It is about meeting people via water and be helpful to one another. The sea makes an even playing ground for all.
I am myself quite ashamed that I have never been to any point further east than Bali! But that will change, especially when Rani is my crew together with Noe and baby Kei (in production).
