Unable to return to our home country, we are forced to put plans in motion to have our child abroad. We leave the boat and off to the foreign hospital we go!
In this episode, with Nandji on the hardstand and not ready to be launched, we need to pack her up and move closer to the hospital. Bonita is now 9 months pregnant and the baby could come any day. With the hospital a 3 hour drive away, we move overland to the city of Penang.
Due to Australia’s tough and expensive restrictions and the fact it being near impossible to get a flight into the the country, we have had to think how and where we are going to have our baby. With great health care in the city of Penang, Malaysia, we decided this would be our place.
Away from friends and family and alone in this new city, times can be difficult. Together we can face any obstacle and this is a new challenge for our family to overcome.

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 and 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! Ready to sail across the Indian Ocean, we were only days away from leaving when the pandemic begun closing countries around us… We are stuck for now, but enjoying the slower pace as we have just had our first baby, born in Malaysia! Now completing our second major refit, Nandji is ready for the world when the world is ready for us!!!
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!
