Sailing Nandji Ep 13 – The Percy Isles. Ship wrecks, Bikinis and Coconuts. VIDEO
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we arrive to the stunning Percy Isles. Since sailing down the coast, we have been looking forward to this stop off.
The Percy group of islands are remote and alone, along way from the nearest main land town. Middle island has a very colourful history that we learnt all about from the current caretakers. The island has four permanent residents and rarely do they go to the mainland. Some of the stories they told were very interesting.
One week before our arrival, a fellow yachtie had done himself a mischief and ran aground on the rocks. Losing everything. His sailing boat wreck is prominent in the distance from the anchorage. We go check it out and see what can happen when things go horribly wrong.
Lots of sailing boats come and go during our visit. A popular destination with still so much seclusion. We loved this place so much we want to sail back there now!
