Passage to Borneo

Hi Folks,

Just a couple of quick ones here if I may:

a. Could anyone please advise weather-wise, what is considered to be the best time of the year to transit from Singapore to Borneo.

b. Has anyone used the new marina in Kuching and if so, any information would be appreciated.

Cheers and thanks
SY Coral Kuching

Follows second-hand (3Rd?) information - I haven’t been there.

The new Kuching Marina is on Sungai Sarawak, approximately 12 miles upriver (located at approx. 01 33.5' N, 110 24.3' E).
As from the middle of July 2010, the Marina will be charging RM2.00 per meter. Price includes electricity & water.
As well as the very strong currents, the marina is exposed to the wake from passing freighters / express ferries etc.
