December 10, 2010 - Successful Crossing

By: Arturo Valdez

7:00 AM - Sangley Naval Base, Cavite: Balangay flotilla successfully made crossing of two challenging passages - Calavite and Verde - yesterday and finally made it inside Manila Bay. But it was dark already and no one is familiar with Puerto Azul Cove. We're already traumatized hitting a reef so we just decided to continue all the way to Sangley, arriving midnight of December 9.

Coast Guard Admiral Tamayo already instructed the station to assist docking. "Balangay DIWATA NG LAHI" is almost home. Manila's bright lights can be seen clearly from Sangley.

After dropping anchor last night, we said our prayer of THANKS to the Lord Almighty for bringing the three balangays and 39 crew safely ALMOST home.
