In this episode, Returning back to Nandji after a quick trip to Bali, we had the froth to go sailing! We have been eyeing off an atoll 400 nautical miles away for the past year! We have been trying our hardest to get there and finally the time has come when we can set some sails and head towards this attol oasis. Needing to travel through the islands, it is hard to pass up stopping at places to play. This place is just too much fun!!!
In this episode, after returning to our Boat in remote Indonesia, our first sailing trip was cut short with the need to have documents witnessed for a personal matter back in Australia. With the only option to fly to Jakarta or Bali to visit the embassy... A 100nm sail, 3 hour car drive, 3 flights and a screaming baby later, we are in Bali!!! With the official trip out the way, its time to play!
In this episode, We head out for our first big sail since returning to the boat. We had been labouring over fixing and cleaning everything ready to go, but before we take Nandji on an extended journey, let's first see if everything is working. With a group of islands 25 nautical miles away, the perfect destination for a test sail.
In this episode, we have been busy sorting and repairing Nandji after our time back in Australia. It has been a long week of preparation, but with a boat ready to sail, its time for a shake down and see if everything is working! This anchorage has been a wonderful protected place to hide away, with some crazy squalls blowing through the anchorage, it was nice to be somewhere protected. With a friendly fisherman dropping by daily to offer up his catch, we ate well and Bonita got to practice cleaning fish! WHAT A WOMEN!!
In this episode, we are busy organising, cleaning and fixing everything on Nandji to get her back ready to sail once again. Surprisingly, Nandji is in great condition and there are only a couple of minor issues to fix. One of those problems though is the outboard engine. Yosh is busy scratching his brain figuring out the cure whilst Bonita is busy cleaning the winches and giving them a grease. Nandji is nearly ready to sail, but hold on. Where's Marley?
In this episode, our time in Australia has come to an end. We finally got home to visit our family and friends and introduce our daughter to everyone after 2.5 years away. The last couple of months have flown by but Nandji is calling. This is the longest time we had ever been away from our boat. The long flight delays and difficulty in overseas was all worth it as we set feet back onboard our home. I wonder what surprises she has in store!!
