The day before the DISASTER... Ep 176

Sailing Nandji
Sailing Nandji
This was the lead up to the night where we nearly lost Nandji on the reef... This video was filmed early Febuary before the global pandemic really took off. Thailand was one of the first countries affected and we took the adequate precautions early to protect ourselves. In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we have nearly completed the list of jobs we hoped to complete to have Nandji ready for the Indian Ocean. We take our storm sail into the sail maker to get cut smaller as the last thing we want if caught in a gale is to have too much sail up! With Nandji feeling good, we depart Thailand and sail to Langkawi. This is the first sail we complete after weeks of boat work on Nandji. If everything goes smoothly, we would be departing for Sri Lanka with in the week and beginning our voyage across the Indian Ocean. What happens next was not what we had planned at all. This is the day before the disaster. After a great sail for the day we arrive into Koh Rok islands where we pick up a mooring to rest for the night. The glassy smooth water, the sun setting and surrounded by beautiful lush tropical jungle on these small island paradise, it felt like a dream. We had worked so hard to get to this point and the year looked very exciting at this time. If only we knew what was about to happen... 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! The adventure is just beginning as we plan to sail our Nandji girl around the world!! 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! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL. CLICK THE BELL to know when NEW Nandji videos are up!
