After 7 months of Boat Work, IT’S SPLASH DAY!!! Ep 231


After 7 long months of hardwork, splash day is upon us!!

In this episode, Nandji is going back to where she belongs!! It has been a long journey to reach this point of Nandji going back in the water. We have had a baby and completed some major boat works to make our boat a beautiful home for the future years of sailing.
When covid hit, we decided to stay with our boat and our dog to have our first born baby overseas. The unknown of leaving these two behind, was not fathomable. It has been difficult a decision to deal with, add many many hours of hardwork, constant visa issues and the potential we were being kicked out… We now have a beautiful daughter and a vessel that floats!!! All those long days in the boat yard on a grinder, all those litres of sweat dripping off my nose, all seem like distant memories as we reach this major mile stone in cruising once again.

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!!!
