Sailing Nandji – Ep 42, Problems at sea & 50 knots

Our first Offshore Ocean Crossing

In this episode of Sailing Nandji, We take on our greatest challenge yet and attempt to cross the Coral sea. This is our first offshore blue water sail and the longest sail we would have attempted yet.

The 800nm sail we expected to take roughly 8 days at sea. The journey was full of challenges, dealing with 50 KNOTS! broken halyards and broken starter motors. We had rough weather and we had calm winds. The adventure was filled with all things good and bad. An adventure really begins when things dont go to plan.

We accept every challenge and work together to get the job done and safely arrive to Noumea in New Caledonia. What a trip!
