In this episode of Sailing Nandji, Yosh is left alone on Nandji to fend for himself for a couple of days whilst Bonita goes deep in the jungle to live with a Mentawai tribe. She is 100nm away from Nandji so Yosh heads offshore on his first ever solo sail! With strong relentless trade winds and big choppy seas, it is a challenging and rough sail across the passage from Padang, West Sumatra to Siberut Island in the Mentawai archipelago.
I have always wanted to attempt a solo sail and finally the time had come where I had the opportunity. I have always really enjoyed challenging myself and the awesome feeling you have once you achieve your goal. I knew I was in for a bit of ride in this first ever solo sail as the weather was not ideal. But smooth seas do not make a better sailor! It poses the question of is a solo sailor crazy before he leaves or goes crazy at sea? Guess it is time to find out!!

I believe that it is completely terrifying to sail alone. Water can always be deep and the fact that you are all alone and there is no one to help you in the middle of the ocean is a huge fear that you must face. But Yosh was brave enough to say yes for a challenge that was given to him. I must say that it took him a big courage to say yes for that. But since he knows that he is going to benefit from that he took the risk. I am sure that he learned so much from the experience!
