Provisioning on a Scooter, NOT Recommended | Sailing Thailand (Sailing Nandji) Ep 137

Sailing Essentials
We spend a week in Thailand preparing for our first big offshore passage since the refit, across the Mallaca Strait to Indonesia!

In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we arrive to the island of Phuket in Thailand. Wasting no time, we head straight to land and hire a scooter to begin the daily missions of chasing up everything we need for our next big adventure to Indonesia and the Indian Ocean. We collect the essentials, ranging from surfboards and fishing rods to toilet paper and epoxy!

We get our NEW Flexible Solar panel by Solbian Solar panels stitched onto our bimini. Nandji now has a little bit of luxury with 2 fridges installed and we want to maximise the amount of solar energy we can harness installing the new SXX 180 flexible solar panel. These panels are new technology and we are excited to now have over 700 watts of solar on Nandji. To learn more about this product, check out our website.

Keeping busy whilst we wait for the bimini to be completed, we finish off other jobs around Nandji that need to be done. Since leaving the boatyard we have a long list of little jobs that need to be completed to finalise the refit. One of these is to re apply kiwi grip on the new bow, so we spend the afternoon finishing off this project before going out enjoying the fact we are in Thailand after all! It can not be all work without a little play!

With all our ducks in a row, we finally sail away from Thailand and out into the Mallaca Strait. Leaving late in the season/change of seasons means we no longer have favourable trade winds and are going to be sailing upwind and bashing to windward to reach our destination. Yet another passage upwind, hopefully the last for a while!!

Thank you to everyone who has watched our videos and contributed to our new engine. It is all because of you legends we have been able to install this brand new engine and re-power Nandji. With all this boat work being complete our vessel is becoming indestructible as we get her ready for our next big trip across the Indian Ocean.

With no sailing experience, we bought a yacht, got it blue water cruising ready and set off sailing to the Pacific! We have since cruised through Vanuatu, the Solomon islands, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia and finally arrived to the boat yard in Malaysia to prepare for the next big adventure. The work is now complete and off we go to Thailand on our way to Indonesia.

We departed Australia in July 2017 and have since explored some amazing countries, met some beautiful people and experienced so many different and diverse cultures, dived pristine reefs, surfed solo in the middle of nowhere, spent weeks at sea, dealt with storms, big waves, strong winds and had the time of our life doing it! The adventure is just beginning as we sail West with the trades around the World! Indian Ocean here we come!!
