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!!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your latest sailing adventure in Penang. It's always fascinating to learn about the different challenges and opportunities that arise when sailing in unfamiliar waters, and your experience navigating limited boat yards in Malaysia was particularly enlightening. Your descriptions of passing under the two long bridges and up wind sailing through the Malacca straits were vivid and really helped me to feel like I was right there with you. I also appreciate your honesty about the potential impact of COVID restrictions on your future sailing plans, and your excitement about the impending arrival of your little one is palpable. Overall, a fantastic and engaging read - thanks for sharing your journey with us!
