In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we utilise the sunny days in Thailand and explore some of the many islands there are on offer. The sailing grounds in Thailand are amazing and we are blessed with smooth, easy and fun sailing. The problem is that other tourist boats are only a short boat ride away from the land and therefore we have to be in quick if we want to beat the masses. Part of the enjoyment of living on a sailboat is to find seclusion, away from everyone and everything. Thailand makes that hard, but we tried and we won!!!
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we depart Indonesia on a 220nm sail across the Malacca Strait to Thailand. After a scary start to the journey with problems with our AIS in the middle of the second busiest shipping lanes in the world... We are blessed with the most amazing conditions and make great tracks to Thailand. We have the best sunsets and sunrises we have seen in a long time! For some reason the best sunsets are at sea!
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, our refit is moving forward in leaps and bounds. With the engine room overhauled and the bow rebuilt, we have run into a wall as Chinese New year fast approaches and majority of the businesses in Langkawi shut down for 2 weeks. The lead up to the New year everyone was in holiday mode already and we could not get anything built. Uncle Kevin to the rescue!!! We load up his vessel with everything needed to be remade and a list of items needed to be purchased and off we go sailing to Thailand!
