The world was closing its borders, time to go off grid and wait this out... https://www.sailingnandji.com/ This video was filmed in March/April as the global covid-19 pandemic took a hold of the world. Neighbouring countries had closed their borders and Malaysia went into a 2 week lock down, which was continually extended every 2 weeks.

Countries borders were closed and it seemed for at least the next few weeks we would not be travelling anywhere. The streets were becoming empty and people were told to remain in their houses. We did not want to be around civilisation so we did what us yachties do best, head off grid to our our own island home. Living off grid for months at a time is nothing new for us yachties. We are always trying to seek out the far away tropical paradise places away from everyone and everything. Now with the pandemic really taking over the world, now is the best time to do what we do best. With a boat well stocked and ready to sail across the Indian Ocean, our plans change and for now itt is time to head off grid for lockdown! With no sailing experience, we bought a yacht, got it blue water cruising ready and set off from Australia sailing to the Pacific! We have since cruised through New Caledonia, Vanuatu, the Solomon islands, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and then onto the boat yard in Malaysia to prepare for the years to come. With a new engine, we continued onto Thailand, then back down into Indonesia and specifically West Sumatra to live the island life and chase the surf. With our Sailing plans changing, we returned to Thailand to wait for the weather and begin our journey to the northern route of the Indian Ocean to Sri Lanka before heading south across the Indian Ocean once cyclone season has finished and the trade winds begin! We were on our shake down sail when the mooring we were on failed on our home ended up on the reef. We saved the old girl and got her back to the boat yard for repairs to continue on our adventure! We departed the east coast of Australia in July 2017 and have since sailed over 10000nm offshore. We have explored some amazing countries and met some beautiful people along the way. We have experienced so many different and diverse cultures, dived pristine reefs, surfed solo in the middle of nowhere, spent weeks at sea, dealt with storms, big waves, strong winds and had the time of our lives doing it! The adventure is just beginning as we sail West with the trades around the World!
