Looking for a more scenic anchorage we moved a couple of miles south to be near an uninhabited island with white sand beach. There were already five other rally boats anchored in the shallow part and as we have the capability to anchor deeper we took the option of having more swinging room further out. I snorkelled on the reef and found the coral to be dead.
The rally is now just a collection of boats travelling together as Sail Maldives Yacht rally has fizzled to an end. With no Mother Ship travelling with the group as generator problems meant it never went further than Male and the rally leader, Hanyff, thumbing a lift on a single handers' boat there are no more events organised. There should have been an Ocean Festival in Gan at the conclusion but we hear nothing of dates or plans.
We stayed just one night here because we rolled all night. With the opportunity of flatter places to stay we moved on.
