OUR LATEST YOUTUBE EPISODE...
Our NEW BOAT REFIT is nearly FINISHED!!
Welcome back to Crazy, Beautiful Thailand. We have sailed back into Phuket Thailand so we can utilise the skilled tradesman and to finally finish off our new boat refit. When we bought Nandji II, she was not really set up as a live aboard vessel but more a boat suited to shore power and running the generator all day. To make Nandji 2 ready for extensive off grid living, all of this had to change. Lithium batteries installed, charger/invertor installed, solar charge controllers installed and now to complete this electrical upgrade, its time to install solar power!

Sailing Nandji Gear
Where it all Started...
We packed up our things and drove across Australia to move aboard our new vessel. How things have changed for the better!!
Our First Off Shore Ocean Passage...
With a year of sailing under our belts, we take on our biggest challenge, sailing across the Coral Sea! What could wrong... Just about everything!!!!
This is our first episode of Sailing Nandji. Nandji is our Roberts 40 yacht we bought two months ago in Airlie Beach. We are from South Australia and are learning how to sail. We love to try new things and adventure. This episode is about our journey leaving Adelaide, travelling across the country and moving onto our new vessel. We had a few surprises when we arrived but managed to take her out for our first sail.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, We take on our greatest challenge yet and attempt to cross the Coral sea. This is our first offshore blue water sail and the longest sail we would have attempted yet. The 800nm sail we expected to take roughly 8 days at sea. The journey was full of challenges from dealing with 50 KNOTS! broken halyards, broken starter motors and NO AUTOPILOT. We had rough weather and we had calm winds. The adventure was filled with all things good and bad. An adventure really begins when things dont go to plan. We accept every challenge and work together to get the job done and safely arrive to Noumea in New Caledonia after hand steering for 8 days straight. What a trip!
'How to not buy a Yacht' by Captain Yosh
The story of my experiences when we first bought Nandji. Learn from our mistakes!
When we first looked into buying a yacht, we had no idea what we were looking for. We happily flicked through thousands of images of yachts on the internet thinking we knew a thing or two... I quickly realised I needed to do a lot more research. This ebook is about my experiences of purchasing a vessel, what I looked for and how we ended up with the boat we got!
