This video was filmed early Febuary before the global pandemic really took off. Thailand was one of the first countries affected and we took the adequate precautions early to protect ourselves.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we have been sitting at anchor in Thailand completing the final jobs on the list to get our Nandji ready for the massive task of sailing across the Indian Ocean. We have completed a long list of jobs and slowly but surely we are closer to complete. After having a disastrous first offshore sail to New Caledonia where we are still haunted to this day, we thought we needed to change a few things. Our head sail halyard snapped, resulting in us fishing the genoa out of the ocean. Yosh then trying to climb the mast in rough seas and nearly hurting himself, to then having a smaller and less reliable head sail hoisted for the passage equalling in a longer passage against the trades and hand steering the whole 9 days.... We therefore wanted to take as many measures as possible for a back up in case this happens again. Therefore we install a secondary headsail halyard.

Yosh Glad I was not the only one slamming you for the screws on the padeyes. We got your back young man. Hope you three are all safe and well in these times. For me, I am lucky I already work from home. For my daughter, she has three kids under 5, two of which have a rare condition that includes dodgy hearts, so she is totally isolating them until vaccines are out. So they are in for the long haul. We were able to have a "fence Party as youg Abel had this third birthday as we sat on the other side of the gate. Hurts ot being able to cuddle your grand children.
