In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we have arrived back to Thailand after saving our boat from a near ship wreck experience. We had so many fortunes to take out of this bad experience and that allowed us to save our vessel and reach the boat yard without sinking. This was the worse night of our lives and the most scariest situation we have had to deal with. We were lucky to keep our boat floating and lucky to get to the boat yard. However the struggles are only just beginning. We had cleared out of Thailand to sail to another country and then we emergency returned without visiting another country. This made more problems than we could have imagined... Thailand is a beautiful country with friendly warm people and amazing scenery. It is a lovely country and a fun place to be until things go wrong. We are now faced with dealing with the bureaucracy of a disaster in a foreign country.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, things go horribly wrong. We have been working hard for weeks on end to prepare Nandji for the massive year of sailing across the Indian Ocean. We finally have her ready and take her for a test sail 120nm from Thailand to Langkawi. Stopping off half way at a group of islands we pick up a mooring for the night to rest... Little did we know how much our life was about to change. A heavy squall blew through the anchorage in the wee hours of the morning and we were woken by the anchor alarm screaming. Before we could start the engine we were being tossed around on the reef. The mooring we had picked up had failed and snapped and we were now being pushed by the wind and waves onto the reef... Is this the end of Nandji?
