November 25, 2010 - Reroute to Cuyo

By: Arturo Valdez

6:00 AM - Flotilla changed course for Cuyo because of strong northeast wind after hosted in Apulit Resort by former Energy Sec. Vince Perez yesterday. Then sailed towards Taytay at 2 PM for a rousing welcome by school children and Mayor Toto Rodriguez who personally ensured that balangay and crew are well taken cared. We again got the famous Pinoy brand of hospitality and treat by people of Taytay. This is one memorable stop for us. Now we're heading towards JP Rodriguez town of Cuyo.

6:21 AM - We really got a scare yesterday on our way to Taytay when Sama Tawi-Tawi hit something right after cruising 120 ft of  water. It was a reef that rose up after a drop in depth and threw us into panic. Upon reaching port we had it checked and got a relief to see that only a small dent at the aft portion of the keel. The waters of coastal Palawan is full of shoals and reefs quite dangerous for navigation.
