Wall of Squalls | Sailing Balachandra E063

Sailing Essentials
In this video “Wall of Squalls” we finish our stay at Christmas Cove, St Thomas, then leave for a one day sail to the south for St Croix for a change of atmosphere. Due to the covid-19 / coronavirus restrictions we are currently only able to travel between the islands of the USVIs. At about the half way point (3 hours off shore) we strike an unavoidable wall of heavy squall and are forced to put in reefs. Squalls are frequent in the Caribbean so we decided to record one start to finish. Arriving in St Croix we venture into Christiansted to pick up supplies and see the town (currently on lockdown except for essentials).

In August of 2017 we sold everything and moved aboard Balachandra, a 1986 C&C44 sailboat, then sailed it over 300 nautical miles to Halifax Nova Scotia to spend a cold Canadian winter in the frozen waters of the North Atlantic. Sailing Balachandra is our YouTube sailing vlog inspired by other great channels such as Delos and La Vagabonde, which documents the sailing adventures of myself and my partner Nawal as we navigate the globe. We also dive into lots of DIY boat projects both above and below decks, and share with you all of the pros and cons of living aboard full time. Sailing Balachandra is published weekly so please subscribe so you don’t miss out on future videos!
