Our friends of Sailing Nandji departed the east coast of Australia in July 2017 and have since sailed over 10000nm offshore. They have explored some amazing countries and met some beautiful people along the way. In this article you’ll can discover their adventures in Thailand!
Exploring Phi Phi Islands! – Ep 160
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, after spending 5 months in remote Indonesia, returning to Thailand we thought we wanted to do the normal tourist stuff, so we motor sailed Nandji the 20nm across to the infamous Phi Phi islands. This place is crazy busy with boats and tourists as thousands of tourists every day frequent the island.
With hundreds of loud long boats roaring past Nandji, we decide to join the pack and hire our very own long boat captain for the day and head out on an excursion around the islands. This romanitc idea was more stressful than anticipated as we have near misses, boat collisions, get stuck on a rock and then have choppy seas on the way home… A real Thailand adventure!
HOOPS! WE NEARLY KILLED YACHT RUBY ROSE! – Ep 161
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we meet up with fellow Youtube sailing channel Yacht Ruby Rose. We were preparing to leave the Phi Phi island area when Bonita received a message from these guys asking where we were and if we wanted to hang! Awesome! We know a great little place where we could go and try to impress our fellow yachties… This is where we nearly kill Yacht Ruby Rose…
Scoring Seclusion in Thailand!! – Ep 162
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we utilise the sunny days in Thailand and explore some of the many islands there are on offer. The sailing grounds in Thailand are amazing and we are blessed with smooth, easy and fun sailing.
The problem is that other tourist boats are only a short boat ride away from the land and therefore we have to be in quick if we want to beat the masses. Part of the enjoyment of living on a sailboat is to find seclusion, away from everyone and everything. Thailand makes that hard, but we tried and we won!!!
