Today is our final day in Malaysia. And we chose an amazing spot to cap off a great run in this country. Most of the morning in Pulau Gubang Darat was spent studying for the big marine biology exam and finishing our species logbooks. The pre-sail checklist consumed the rest. Once Boomer and his helpers returned from checking us out of Malaysia, and once lunch was finished, we set sail for Phuket, Thailand. The exam and oceanography took place underway and watch teams took over soon after. The rest of the afternoon was spent sailing. The wind was in our favor until we put all six sails up.
