👉Filmed before the current worldwide emergency👈 While we waited for Millie's results and some improvement to her health, we got on with boat jobs and explored the area around the marina. And Jamie had a demonstration from Roy of 'SV Seven Thunders' on how to make an ocean plait mat. We used an old sheet from an even older foresail to do the job. After the first visit to the first vet, little did we know we were in for the long haul and for many more visits over the coming months to a total of four different vets. The new mat is brilliant for Millie to sharpen her claws... and yes, the cat sat on the plait mat! 👉 REAL-TIME LOCKDOWN SERIES: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoE3FmplhAXNmjbg07i5Sj3MtxuSvhHiB 💬 Join FTBMates if you'd like to get to know us better.

Our Millie's first vet visit, a bike tour to the 'Sea Horse', a few more boat jobs and a full demonstration of how to make an ocean plait mat - it's a real slice of life in a marina...

Should every sailboat have a bicycle? Maybe not if it's a racing yacht or if your superyacht already has its own helicopter, but for cruisers, we reckon a bicycle on a sailboat does amazing things. Filmed before the lockdown and Movement Restriction Order came into effect on Borneo, having bikes is proving to be pretty useful... Folding bikes don't take up much space and can be tucked away when you're on passage. And when you're in an anchorage or marina take it ashore and have it ready to use any time you like. Get away, explore, do the shopping. And get some exercise! “One of the most important days of my life, was when I learned to ride a bicycle.” -- Michael Palin, traveller, adventurer, original Python. “Meet the future; the future mode of transportation for this weary Western world. Now I’m not gonna make a lot of extravagant claims for this little machine. Sure, it’ll change your whole life for the better, but that’s all.” -- Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969 👉 REAL-TIME LOCKDOWN SERIES: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoE3FmplhAXNmjbg07i5Sj3MtxuSvhHiB 💬 Join FTBMates if you'd like to get to know us better.

If you flout the Movement Restriction Order in Malaysia you could end up in jail for six months or receive a $250 fine. As the infection is spreading here, we do not leave the marina because shopping in lockdown can be unnerving. But occasionally we need fresh produce, in which case Jamie gets on the bike, dons mask and gloves and goes to the nearest store. He is given 10 minutes to shop then he has to return home...

We filmed this a couple of months ago before one thing and another bit us all in the arse. So take a break from all the bad news and enjoy going walkabout in the Borneo rainforest. xxx What's the opposite of sailing? Jungle walking! And Gunung Mulu National Park is just the place to do it. Walking through tropical rainforest in this UNESCO site was the perfect place for some R&R. And Mulu is also the place to explore the biggest cave system in the world. There are two hour walks, day walks and multi-day treks in one of the most beautiful places to visit in Borneo. Man, it was amazing and we want to go back!

With nowhere to run, we are living in total lockdown here in the marina on our sailboat. Each day there are more restrictions and countries nearby are closing their ports. And now it looks like Malaysia is about to stop all sailing vessels from cruising in their waters. If we are able to leave the marina it will be to sail out of Malaysia to a new country. But where? Indonesia and the Philippines don't want us... So it looks like we'll be sitting tight for a while. As long as we are careful not to come into contact with the lurgi we should be OK.

Another 100 miles to go before arriving in a new country to start a new project. But first we need to navigate for the next 22 hours through oil and gas rigs. And we need to time our entrance into Miri Marina perfectly because the sand bar along the coast is treacherous to sail across in rough weather. That means sailing nice and gently to arrive at the precise time we have in mind... With the unpredictable wind of the transitional period, it's essential that one of us stays on watch at all times to deal with any sudden changes in direction. We finished the 500-mile passage with a slow day sail and motor-sail overnight. At a mile and a half out, the depth drops to 8m, shelving to 3m. The marina entrance is notorious for silting up and the depth keeps changing. So we planned to arrive on a rising tide, and as it's a spring we should have enough depth... We settle into our new home for the next month and start to prepare the boat for the hike to Japan and PNW next year. Of course, one of the main jobs is going to be installing a heating system. But of immediate importance is to seal the overhead hatch in our saloon which has been leaking on and off for ages.

This is not a debate about whether Covid-19 is going to kill you, or whether it’s nothing to get your knickers in a twist about. And we will not be giving any space to the conspiracy theories popping up like Whac-A-Mole around the internet.

There are a few reasons why sailors and cruisers should be worried about the coronavirus just as much as our landlubbing friends. Maybe the best thing for each of us to do is take our sailboat out to sea or to anchor off some remote, desert island? The disease is spreading across the world, countries are closing their ports, border control is getting tighter and more restricted, some of us are quarantined in the place we're currently anchored or moored and some of us will have to re-think our sailing plans. And then there is the usual problem of renewing visas... We need to keep a daily watch on developments around the world which will inevitably impact all of us. The virus (officially named COVID-19) spreads the disease known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is not flu, although some symptoms are similar. At the time of writing, no children have died and most healthy mid-life adults have survived. Health workers are at greater risk because they are being exposed more than the rest of us. Older people and those with pre-existing medical complaints are the ones taking the brunt of the disease. But it is early days yet and scientists are working hard to gather data from around the world to establish the parameters of the disease. It is our duty to try to stop its spread and to ensure we do not pass it on (even unwittingly) to our older or infirm friends, workmates and family. Washing hands regularly and for longer than normal is essential to aid in slowing the reach of coronavirus.
