This is the hardest video we have ever shared and it was the WORST NIGHT OF OUR LIVES… This video was filmed early February before the global pandemic really took off. Thailand was one of the first countries affected and we took the adequate precautions early to protect ourselves.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, things go horribly wrong. We have been working hard for weeks on end to prepare Nandji for the massive year of sailing across the Indian Ocean. We finally have her ready and take her for a test sail 120nm from Thailand to Langkawi.
Stopping off half way at a group of islands we pick up a mooring for the night to rest… Little did we know how much our life was about to change. A heavy squall blew through the anchorage in the wee hours of the morning and we were woken by the anchor alarm screaming.
Before we could start the engine we were being tossed around on the reef. The mooring we had picked up had failed and snapped and we were now being pushed by the wind and waves onto the reef… Is this the end of Nandji?
