HOW WE NAVIGATE THROUGH REEFS AND THE APPS WE USE

If you have any other suggestions, please put them in the comments, we’d love to hear your tips and advice for navigating where the charts don’t go.

Some of the best places on earth are also the most difficult to navigate. If you don’t want to rip off your rudder or open a hole in your hull watch this!

We explain or on-board navigation system, the apps we use and the way in which we tackle this blue planets more challenging areas. There are a whole load of resources out there, so why not use them?

We learned how best to tackle reef and bommie-strewn shallow waters in the Red Sea, then again in the Maldives and more recently in SE Asia. Charts just won’t hack it in this kind of scenario, you need all your wits about you and senses on full alert to avoid a disaster…but it’s worth it, because some of the places we’ve eased into have been simply spectacular.

Fair winds and peaceful sailing!

PS. After we recorded and posted this video Jamie received a thank you email from Navionics confirming that they have adjusted their charts for the Anambas. Hooray!
