With a strict lockdown looming, we need to get out! Let’s go sailing!

In this episode, we narrowly escape the regulations and head out for a shakedown sail before strict lockdown rules are implied to the country. We want to get out of the confinements of the marina and be at anchor where life is more normal. With strict regulations coming into play at mid night, we take the opportunity to head out for further sea trials of Nandji in preparation for leaving Malaysia soon. We want to test out all the systems on Nandji and make sure she is ready for the long journey ahead, sailing back to Australia.

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! Completing our second major refit, Nandji is nearly ready for the onward journey back to Australia for summer.
