Refuelling with 100 litres of clean diesel fuel for MVR 14.00 or US$ 1.10 per litre from Hassan, the helpful skipper of a dhoni in the fishing harbour of Gaidhoo, syphoning the precious stuff out of his ship's main tank and jerry-jugging it over some breakneck planks to our SY “Kamu II”.

Strolling through the main village, meeting friendly local people, provisioning from one of the local green grocers and dining on great Maldivian ray curry, at the restaurant Geeth in “down town” Gaidhoo, together with our reliable friend, plain-clothes village cop and self-appointed tour guide Shifau.
