Re: hi from the Philippines

Hi, I am considering buying a yacht which is presently moored in Porta G..I have plenty of sailing experience in Australian waters but non in the Phils. Understanding that the Phils have quite a number of typhoons ripping trough, how are the permanent mooring arrangements in Porta G.? Since I can't be on the yacht permanently in order to move her to a more secure anchorage, with your experience, what would be the best option? Is Bonbonon any better in the long run?
Any advice ?
I live in the Philippines for about 6 month of the year so I do know the country, but owning a yacht there is a new challenge for me.
Thanks

Re: hi from the Philippines

Thanks for the message. Which boat are you thinking of buying? I know them all very well. As for keeping it here, true, we do get the occasional typhoon, normally in the November/December season. I've had my yacht here for 10 years and have weathered several, including a Cat 5. The moorings are surveyed annually and are considered to be as typhoon safe as possible. It's a great community here and very convenient for Manila, if that is where you are starting.

Bonbonong - not sure. Not stayed there. I can ask a friend who stayed there a while and will get back to you. From anecdotal accounts, there's not much of interest there. You might want to take a look at Busuanga. There's a new yacht club, with good moorings and great cruising grounds.

regards,

Pete

Re: hi from the Philippines

Hi and thanks for the reply..I had a look at Little Swan a couple of month ago...I had a talk to Tony a very nice chap. I live near Angeles for about 6 month a year. I am getting sick of city life...Been living on boats for many years in Australia and now its time to move back on board again. Just wondering are there any other mooring possibilities in Porta G then the Porta Yacht club ? What are the average mooring fees?. I guess for slipping etc one has to go to Subic. Boating equipment, rigging and bits and pieces where to find.?.Venture Marine? Broadwater yachts?
cheers
Erich

Re: hi from the Philippines

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Last sailing in Subic was on Navy rentals. Fun sailing in the bay to Grande Island and Gaines Beach. That's a long long time ago.
kind regards,
