Sailing Nandji Ep 249 RESCUE US!! 9 days Adrift in the Doldrums…

In this episode of Sailing Nandji, the battle continues as we try to reach land for repairs. Not being able to use the engine as our prop fell apart, we have tried to sail the 200 nautical miles back to Pangkor marina in Malaysia. With countries borders closed, getting to land is only the first battle.

Struggling to sail any distance in the right direction due to light winds and an opposing current, we have our tender tied to the side to try and make headway. With limited outboard fuel, we need to use this sparingly. Finally after 9 days, we reach close enough to the marina where we are rescued and towed the final 50 nautical miles into safe harbour.
