Hoi Marijke,

Het briefje met je webadres kwam vandeweek, tijdens het opruimen, tussen een stapel papieren uit!! Tijd om een berichtje op jullie site te plaatsen dus! Herinner je je ons nog?

We vonden het erg leuk dat je ons een dagje mee hebt genomen om vogels te spotten en hebben erg mooie foto's/films van de kingfisher, sunbird e.v.a.!!

Geniet nog van jullie reis!!

Hi both of you, finally managed to read most of your trip report in Borneo. Enjoyed it very much.

Hope to have you hear again in the near future.

God Bless.

Hi Cam, could you please enter your email addres again? Somehow it didn't show up at my .com Anyway, i don't think haul out in Taiwan is "yachting" bizz,. Take a look at Noonsite, there is more recent cruising etc info about Taiwan. For sure there is a more active yachting group in Kaoshung, maybe they can help you. Salute, jaap


6:19 PM on October 21, 2009

Hi there, just visited you site and would like to ask about your time in Taiwan. We are now in Okinawa on our way back to HK and are wondering whether we can haul out in Southern Taiwan (hopefully, the marina in the most southern tip. Have you been there? We are a 42 feet catamaran and even though we found so many cats in Okinawa, but in Ginowan marina, you have to hire your own crane, which is a lot more expensive. would be glad to get some advice from you about Taiwan. Fair Winds.


12:59 PM on October 21, 2009

Been following (and enjoying) your travels for about 1 year now and check regularly. Found originally as we sometimes wonder about sailing S.E. Asia (and perhaps Japan) someday down the road.

We're in Vancouver -- a great place for sailing (any plans for the west coast of N.A. ever?)


10:53 AM on October 17, 2009

MArijke, Jaap,

Je houdt het niet voor mogelijk, maar op mijn zoektocht naar informatie over wereldreizigers kom ik op jullie site terecht! Het is heeel lang geleden dat we elkaar bij Merou gezien hebben, maar ik heb plannen om binnen afzienbare tijd in jullie kielzog te treden. Heb nu nog een redleijk klein zeiljacht, maar hard aan het sparen voor een grotere boot. Wie weet komen we elkaar dan weer ergens tegen en kunnen we wat bijpraten.

Groeten, Ino

Jaap en Marijke, we hopen dat jullie het naar de zin hebben in KK. Jessie en ik vonden het prachtig jullie in Miri te ontmoeten en te leren kennen. Ondertussen ben ik weer aan het werk bij Shell in Miri en heb ik afgelopen zondag de ballbreaker hash getest. Het duurde iets minder dan 5 uur. Prachtige run door primary rainforest met een paar watervallen en mooie riviertjes. Ook nog een Pelandok gezien (klein hertje). Misschien dat we jullie in KK weer ontmoeten tijdens de Borneo Nash Hash 6 tot 8 November. Groeten van Jessie, Wim

We've just spent our 3 month Thai visas at many of the places you've been to and we're now back in Langkawi for three months minimum. Damn hot now!!

Dag oom en tante,

geweldig om het verslag zo weer na te lezen, kan zo de beelden weer naar boven halen. Het stukje over de similians met het snorkelen maakte me wel jaloers maar gelukkig heb ik hier de 'great barrier reef' wat ook erg fantastisch is. Zie dat Jaap weer kaal is gegaan was dat voor of na het betalen van de 1euro, en wat zien de foto's er weer prachtig uit Marijke:D

Groetjes Tom

Hi! I enjoyed so much about your adventure and wonderful collection of wild life ,such beautiful creatures. You have a rich sense and camera! Mr.Chinami left Honolulu on 7th March for Marquesus and he just passed over the equater! Fair Wind,


10:22 PM on April 13, 2009

Hi! Alishan family,

I am so happy to hear that you enjoy yourlife there,since I have been concerning with very much about our mutual friends Tom&Techlar"Ultimate". We have to accept unfourtunate their incident we lost them all in mid January 2009. Jurnalist has made up their story (12pages) on sail magazine so I heard from his brother. Therefore,I started worry about you there was no sign. Are you still plan come back to Fukuoka in May? Fair Wind!

7:57 PM on October 13, 2008

Jaap and Marijke,

Wow! You look fantastic, I'm sort of like the tin man and need daily oiling or all the joints freeze up. Still saving lives and stamping out disease at SCU and was planning on retiring next year but with the crash of all our retirement funds, looks like I'll be working another elenty-seven years. And so it goes. I soooo want to hook up with you but seems it'll be awhile, I love the toes on the hard life cruising pictures. Don't forget the sunscreen, I'm currently doing a new topical treatment for my skin cancer which stings like hell and looks pretty darn ugly but hey, what's the alternative? My students are fabulous and keep me grinning so all is not lost. Miss Molly the dog sends love and chases around the deck to your kitties and I send lots of big hugs and sweet kisses, michele

Pam Teese

3:19 PM on August 16, 2008

Hi guys.

My name is Pam Teese, and I'm from Liverpool, England, now living in Ireland.

I saw that you met up with Hiro Nagae, and I'd love to touch base with him and his family. I sailed the atlantic crossing with himself, his Liverpool wife Jenny,their daughter Erika,and other crew covering two legs from Bermuda - Azores and then Azores- England.The latter leg comprised an all girl crew, with Hiro as skipper. Hiro's daughter Erika was only about foour at the time,and we had great fun with her - I couldn't tell you how often we resorted to playing our racing game "Ten times round the boat" !!We had to stretch our imagination at times. They were on their cicumnavigation when I met them a couple of years later in Palma, Majorca, Spain. Hiro was planning to open an outdoor activity centre in Japan following the trip. I wonder if he did that? And I'd love to know about Erika and her mother, Jennifer.

If you have any news or could give me contact details or put me in touch I'd be thrilled. Good luck on your travels.

Pam Teese

Hi! What a surprise news Jaap has been injered. A photo looks so miserable and enjoyable also. I was in Phuket around X'mas time 1997 for a week. It was so beautiful place and sailed Katamaran "Two to Tango" for a day. Your story makes me sentimental journey,but we were quite lucky there was no natural disastor then. I sinserely hope the people will be recovered sooner. Japan is hot summer now 33average and Hakata is evern the hottest because of Yamakasa for a week. That festival remainds me of both of you. Hope all are well. See you when I see you, we shall see in sea. Mena

Hi there you two. Well we got back eventually after suffering two nights in the meridian hotel down south where dima and jules made friends with a baby elephant. i must admit i miss sailing and being back in the rat race again. it was great meeting you two and of course the cats. I can send you some photo's of the Hareem if you would like but tell me if you have a file size limitation. it should not be too bad if you are still getting the bimini done. Cheers and all the best to both of you.

luv n stuff

9:57 AM on June 2, 2008

How cool! It's been a very long time since I sailed. I was just talking about life at sea all those years ago ( I used to sail transatlantic) and was telling a mate of mine that I had the pleasure of working for a few days ona 90 footer called Diabless.( we were in Gaudalupe at the time) This was back in '86, when she was infact yacht of the year and then owned by the American franchiser owner of Beneton USA. All those years ago, I had no seeing this wonderful picture of Diabless..has made my day.

Good luck on your continued say I envy you an understatment!

Happy sailing! :)

I'm enjoying reading your adventures here. We miss you and still some students are asking me "When is Yap sensei coming back?" ... Of course they have fun with new foreign teacher though.

Hello and best wishes from an oldsalt who is wondering if you would advise others to take cats along as crew. I have a 5 year old that has never been on a boat and hate to leave her when I cast off for a year on the water. I hate to think of loosing her.

xxxTo dear Mariaxxx

Thank you for teaching English for one year.

It was possible to have a flaming good time.

It joked a little and it had been noted.However, it sleeps just a little. ^m^

However, it decided it.

I continue the study of English.

Therefore,You must come back to Japan.

I am waiting.

Thank you.

Erg leuk om de website te lezen en het spreekt ons erg aan omdat we in Kobe/Japan wonen. Elke zomer zeilen we in Nederland maar nu ook hier omdat we een boot gekocht hebben en een ligplaats hebben in Shin Nishinomiya Harbor. Nu alleen nog even het verplichte Japans vaarbewijs halen.. Theorie is binnen en deze week praktijk. Dit moet helaas gebeuren met een motorbootje en heeft niets met zeilen te maken. Maar Japanse regeltjes zijn onverbiddelijk......

Een goedemorgen vanuit een witbesneeuwd Nederland. Vorig jaar hebben we gemaild over de mogelijke aanschaf van jullie boot. Helaas iets boven mijn budget. Nu heeft iemand interesse voor mijn s-spant en wil zijn Jan Haring 960 ruilen en wat bijbetaling ontvangen. De Jan Haring lijkt me nog steeds een ideaal schip om alleen lang mee te gaan varen. Veel meer ruimte dan op mijn s-spant.Vinden jullie het erg om een paar vragen over de Jan Haring te beantwoorden?Ik hou me aanbevolen voor jullie reply.Vriendelijke groet, Rem Gielbert.NB Ik neem aan dat jullie Jan Haring is verkocht??
