Re: Winds Sailing South from Luzon in March

Typo there -- I meant to write "AVOID Cebu City." We were heading north from Surigao.

And then do it again and again until we were full. Pick a fuel station that seems busy...if there's a choice. We only got bad/questionable fuel 1 time. And we did a similar maneuver for water. It worked!
Also, Cebu had a marina that had some services...don't know if it's still in operation, though
Yeah, That is basically what I had in mind for most stops - Thanks

Mactan, Bohol? Re: Winds Sailing South from Luzon in March

Filled our jerry jugs with diesel at the fuel station one block from where we tied the dinghy.
I hear the same about Cebu City. What about Mactan and Bohol. I heard the cruising and diving is good in northern Bohol, but there are crowds of tourists at many locales.
