Location: Maldives

We arrived at Male atoll in the Maldives early this morning as the sun was rising over the horizon. The tall buildings came into view first in place of the glowing lights which we had been following for most of the night. After clearing with customs and immigration, the crew went into Male town to explore land and stretch their legs. This evening we have anchored in a nice protected anchorage surrounded by a barrier reef. It’s been a tiring day, and the crew is eager to cruise the many atolls.
