Getting to Medana Bay we caught up with the rally boats in full swing. Medana Bay is described as a marina but really it is a pleasant anchorage with some mooring buoys. There is one unused floating pontoon moored near the jetty. Sadly the other bits that would made it into a small marina got wrecked on a reef off the nearby Gili islands. However there is a pleasant restaurant/bar with a new accommodation area. Nearby there are larger towns and some resorts.

The anchorage must have had 30 plus boats anchored there awaiting the welcome and the free dinner. The Regent arrived to give a welcome to all the sailors.

A Regent is a bit like a provincial governor, a powerful local politician, responsible for quite a few million people and a large area. Marquees were erected and most important beer stalls, traditional musicians played Gammalan and we had a variety of dances put on for our benefit.

The regent arrived and along with the local beauty queen presented scarves to representatives of the different nations present.

The event was concluded with some fine Indonesian food and speeches.

We found a delightful resort nearby, the Medana Bay Resort, and had some r and r by the pool with Australian friends from Azzan.
