I together with Ernie and Lulu Kamatoy wanted to experience the SHIBUMI sunset cruise. This was my second time aboard the SHIBUMI and the first time for Ernie and Lulu. I have been telling them all about my experience on the SHIBUMI last new year's day... it was fantastic!! They should try it!!!
Iggy dropped us off at the Subic Yatch Club to meet up with Jeremy Simpson, owner of the SHIBUMI, for another sunset cruise around Subic Bay. This time we came early.... We set sail at 4:00 pm that afternoon... the water was calm. But it was overcast that afternoon... I was scared we might not be able to have a beautiful sunset....
Jeremy had invited another couple Tony and Au... to help with the sails.
Lulu and Ernie tried their luck in sailing the Shibumi.....
When we got out in the bay... the weather cleared up..... the sun started to shine.... a good opportunity for me to take some photos while waiting for the sun to set.
and have some wine perhaps??
after an hour..... the time we were waiting for has arrived..... Jeremy positioned his boat towards the mountains ( called cinco picos ).... and we got our cameras ready......
You can hire SHIBUMI.... for the sunset booze cruise. You can charter SHIBUMI and its skipper, Jeremy Simpson. It costs 8,000 PHP ( for the boat ) and 500 PHP per person for the booze and chips.... Usually it takes 2 - 3 hours long.... The maximum number of people that can board this 42 footer sailboat is 10 people. You will have to book in advance if you want to do this.
as the advertisement goes... " YOU MIGHT GET HOOKED and fall in love with sailing the SHIBUMI and SUBIC BAY.... but then there is nothing wrong with that!! "
I would reccommend this sunset cruise..... SHIBUMI is the perfect place to spend the afternoon sailing!!!! You won't regret it!
Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Valentines Day to you all!!!
