In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we arrive to the marina and prepare for the coming weeks of work. After safely mooring up to the jetty, we have a stroll around the boat yard and the reality of what is about to come really begins to set in. I am not sure if I am ready for this! Maybe it is the new place giving me nerves, maybe I just don't want to start more boat work projects. However, if we like it or not, baby is coming and now is the time to get Nandji ready for the future with the baby spud! Full steam ahead, let's gut Nandji!
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, after exploring the beautiful city of Penang and checking out hospitals and doctors for the new spud, we figured we wanted to prepare Nandji for the next adventure. With limited boat yards in Malaysia, we have to explore all our options, including the local fishing vessel yard... With a green light to haul out in the coming days, we leave the city and the fancy marina and head to sea. Penang is connected to the mainland by 2 very long bridges and Nandji has only passed under a few bridges so the novelty of this was amusing. Clear of the bridges and back into the Malacca straits, we up wind sail through the day and night to get south to the boatyard. Bonita continually grows rounder and due to covid restrictions tightening around the country, this could be the last sail as a duo. Baby is coming and the nesting begins!!
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we are on the move again! After a solid 6 long months of being around the island of Langkawi, we are free to mve inter province around Malaysia. We are in search of a better healthcare for our new baby and learnt that the city of Penang was the place to be. With a 70 nautical mile sail to reach the island city, we set off to sea once again, sailing towards that endless horizon. Langkawi has been a safe harbour for us during these crazy times but it is one amazing feeling to see it disappear in our wake. Onwards to the next chapter!
