Offshore Sailing NEVER GOES TO PLAN | Sailing Florence Ep.98

A stormy overnight sail 90 miles out into the Indian Ocean to reach the Mentawai Islands off the coast of Sumatra. Sailing never goes to plan as our watch pattern is broken first by faulty electronics and second by a massive thunderstorm. However the goal is worth the trials of this passage as we arrive in the beautiful Mentawai islands. Exploring here we discover the empty surf resorts which are a result of the Indonesian border being closed to foreign tourists.
