One of the best places we have ever gone to! How can we have this atoll all to ourselves!!!
In this episode, we reach our dream destination of an atoll in the middle of no where! We have wanted to sail to this place for years now and to finally reach this destination is a dream come true. After rising early to beat the trade winds, we have a reasonably smooth sail out to the atoll. Not wasting anytime, as soon as the anchor is down, we are in the tender and off to explore this magnificent wonderland. With a tiny island inside the lagoon, the ladies hang out on the beach whilst the dad goes hunting for dinner. Spearing a monster Coral trout, we head to the beach to cook up this delicious fish. Trying a new way of cooking, it turned out delicious. What an end to a magical day.
Let's go remote, like a LONG WAY FROM ANY WHERE!! Trying to sail to a remote atoll, but the weather has other plans
In this episode, we depart the last town of the Mentawai archipelago and head south towards the unknown. We are yet to venture this far south and are heading 75 nautical miles to an atoll in the Indian Ocean. Heading south east straight into the trade winds create some rough upwind offshore sailing. Not ideal with a baby onboard! Sometimes it takes more than once to reach these destinations, thats what makes them so rewarding when you arrive! Catching a big Barracuda, we spy some local canoes fishing for their dinner. Deciding to gift away the fish we caught, we make an old guys day!
