nearly August, Simpson Marine organized the Lagoon Escapade to Koh Hong in Krabi Province. The two-day affair left from Ao Po Grand Marina. A drone took aerial photography of the boats under sail between Koh Yao Noi and Koh Pak Bia. On the first day out, a lunch box from Boccocino was served at Koh Pak Bia, courtesy of Simpson Marine. After lunch, the participants enjoyed an afternoon of swimming and leisure, while soaking in the sun.
The next port of call was Koh Hong, where after a leisurely sail more beautiful aerial photography was taken this time with Koh Hong as a backdrop. The late afternoon saw aperitifs on offer as fellow Lagoon owners welcomed each other on board their yachts for a great time socializing and exchanging ideas about their boats and other topics.

Evening saw the participants take their dinghies beachside to the Koh Hong National Park where they enjoyed a BBQ dinner and drinks on the beach again courtesy of Simpson Marine. This was followed by a spectacular firedancing performance. After the show participants dinghied back to their Lagoons for a nightcap before retiring for the night.

The next morning saw breakfast on the Lagoons again with some owners visiting other owners' yachts, before everyone enjoyed a good frolicking in the Hong. By lunchtime, it was time to relax at the Lame Sai Seafood Thai restaurant with lunch again courtesy of Simpson Marine This restaurant has a floating pontoon accessible by dinghy only, so the Lagoons anchored just in front. After lunch, it was time to set sights on Ao Po Grand Marina for the trip home, celebrating a great weekend of Lagoon cruising.

Five catamarans took part in this Escapade: three L450s (Shana, Pilgrim and Papillon) and two L400S2s (Mandragora & another unnamed yacht). Simpson Marine's staff was mainly based on Mandragora, but some were on the unnamed L400S2 and on Shana as well.

For anyone else out on the water in the immediate vicinity of the Escapade the Lagoons made quite an impact as their flotilla sailed on by: great showcasing by the team at Simpson Marine.
