CADENCE cruises by.

The catamaran "CADENCE" cruises by "Anthea" on Sunday, April 27, 08, in Malakal Harbor, Koror, Palau. "Cadence", whose homeport is Half Moon Bay, CA, is now resident here in Koror and is frequently out on the water with skipper Frank and friends onboard.

ANTHEA - Just another fun day!

Just another fun day on board the classic 8 Meter "Anthea", owned by Gary Pione. Gary has kept Anthea in Palau for a few years and visits frequently in between assignments as a shipwright. The day was a little overcast but with a perfect sailing breeze. We cruised out Lighthouse Channel on the east side and headed a few miles off-shore before turning for a nice run downwind back in to Malakal Harbor, then out the west side for a spectacular sunset. Thanks Gary!

Motor Yacht "SORCHA" lying off the west side of Malakal Island with the
Royal Belau Yacht Club in the distance off her bows. Sam's Tours served as
local agent for Sorcha and provided all of their ground services and
logistical support. RBYC played host to Sorcha's crew for some fun in
between trips with the owner and his young family. Kevin Davidson, Palau's
in-demand superyacht guide played master of ceremonies for Sorcha's rock
island adventures and showed all a great time.
