This is the story of Intrepid’s 7 year voyage of adventure and exploration, not a race or rally. We chose to go to some of the most interesting and remote places in the world, and once there tried to get under the surface of what life is really like in these unique places. We travelled with friends, some experienced, some novices who shared thrilling sails, in violent winds and calms, and learned the meaning of self-sufficiency – when you are 2000 miles from land if something breaks you fix it or it stays broken.
And you have to plan for everything from food, water, fuel, medical emergencies, spare parts, communications. This story is written as it happens, with the highs and lows, the excitement and the near misses, and the fascinating people we met. Starting in the Canaries, Intrepid crosses the Atlantic, through the Panama Canal to Galapagos, then remote Marquesas Pacific islands and atolls to Tahiti, Bora Bora, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, historic Indian Andaman Islands, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Oman, Yemen (narrowly avoiding pirates), and up the Red Sea to Turkey.
Andy Gibb is a psychologist, Nicky a hydrogeologist, and with friends they describe a voyage of adventure, wildlife and insight.
