In this episode of Sailing Nandji, after spending a week in a popular anchorage amongst yachties during lockdown, we get on the move as one week in one place is way too long! We have been limited in the amount of activities we have been able to do and we are in need of other ways to let us have fun and keep us in shape. Wet season means waterfalls and Langkawi has a couple of giant waterfalls! Langkawi also has some very high peaks that disappear into the clouds and what better way to stretch our legs than to climb to the top of the second highest peak in Langkawi!
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, after a visit from the Malaysian customs, we decide it is time to head back to town to replenish our fresh supplies and learn more about the current world pandemic. After the ladies complete the food shopping, we learnt it was too early to be back around people. We head straight back to Nandji and set some sails and got as far away as we were allowed, time to spend another month off grid of lockdown living. Rather than return to Angry monkey beach, we find a new anchorage at the bottom of some cliffs. With no internet for two weeks, we move Nandji again closer to a beach where the Whippet can stretch his legs easily. With no other people around for weeks, the noises of the jungle really made it feel we were a long way from anyone or anything. A great place to hide away and let the world heal.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, its time to run the hours up on our new engine fang as we sea trial our new motor. After installing our new engine we soon realised that we would be in need of an autopilot as we plan to do a bit of motoring around Indonesia chasing waves. We break the bank and purchase a CPT Autopilot which is stand alone easy to install unit. Yosh installs the autopilot and then we sea trial the new autopilot.
We may be out of the boatyard but we still have crap every where and lots of little tedious jobs to finalise. Each day whilst we wait for our good camera to be fixed and returned to us, we work 8 hours on the boat anchored somewhere nice away from people and then in the afternoon light, go exploring around the islands. Work hard, Play hard! It is good to be back in a bikini and sailing around Langkawi finally.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, its tools down! Nandji is back in the water and safely at anchor once again. After spending nearly 3 months on the island of Langkawi, we are yet to see any of island apart from the boatyard. We felt it was time to go explore the island and have a day of enjoyment and try to relax a little! We hire a car for the day, little red rocket... and rattle our way around the island of Langkawi checking out the sights. We find some amazing beaches, visit waterfalls, temples and then take the famous cable car to the sky bridge up in the mountains for the spectacular views. To finish the big day of touring off, we head to the tourist beach of Langkawi, Pantai Cenang and relax with a beer and the sun setting over the water. A great day off!
