It is not unusual for Yachting to go far afield in search of an unforgettable experience, but this adventure was a marathon journey-and one definitely worth the effort. The voyage consisted of a three-hour ride from Florida to New York, where I boarded a 20-hour Malaysia Airlines flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with a fuel stop in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. During the flight, I was treated to countless movies, four meals, two sunsets and a half-dozen white oshibori. In Asia, the damp hand towels are ubiquitous, presented tightly rolled, piping hot or ice cold, with a pair of tongs. If nothing else, our hands were clean. Then, I had a two-day layover in Kuala Lumpur, where I awaited an infrequent six-hour flight to Malé. I initially bridled at the enforced rest stop, but it gave me a pleasant chance to visit another country and adjust to jet lag.
