Finally free from Quarantine we sail far from the nearest village to the beautiful Wayag. This will be are base for the coming month and we find the most amazing anchorage right away. My drone didn't seem to like the spot though and promptly flew into a bush which saw me risking my life to try and find her. We also went Manta hunting and discovered a deserted fishing camp.

With our Quarantine swiftly nearing its end we get stuck into getting the boat sea-worthy. Jobs include climbing the mast to check the rigging, oiling the woodwork, checking and repairing the sails, rebedding the front hatch and more. The day arrived when we were allowed to go into town and visit the market and shops in order to supply the boat for our planned month away from civilisation. Worth the wait for sure! #rajaampat #learningbydoing #sailing Become part of the crew and support my videos: https://www.patreon.com/vernondeck https://paypal.me/vernondeck?locale.x...

Our struggle to get back to the boat!!! As the corona virus started to get serious in Europe we decided to change our tickets and try to get back to the boat before everything closed down. It was a pretty wild adventure that took nearly a month but we are back aboard Schiehallion, finished our 2nd quarantine and ready to go. This is a first video of the new 2020 season. Obviously the world is in a bit of a shambles at the moment but things look like they are slowly turning for the better. Stay safe, healthy and happy. #learningbydoing #Rajaampat #Quarantine Become part of the crew and support my videos: https://www.patreon.com/vernondeck https://paypal.me/vernondeck?locale.x...

I sail the 90 miles south from Sorong to Misool, the last part of Raja Ampat I'd yet to explore. I stop for a night at the small village of Segit and visit the very shy but curious locals there. Next morning I made the crossing over to Misool and spent the last couple of hours before sunset trying to find a safe place to anchor for the night. Misool is maybe the most visually stunning place Ive ever seen and I felt nearly a bit guilty experiencing so much beauty all alone. Enjoy my views.

I anchor out front of a small village that was destroyed by an Earthquake. Some locals showed me around the ruins and I saw the clean-up effort going on. A few people lost their lives and there was lots of injuries but it was 3 days after the quake before any help arrived from outside. I felt like a bit of an intruder though so didn't stay very long. A bunch of kids came out to my boat for a sunset fish and music session. I also answer a bunch of questions from viewers. Enjoi!

Help the School in Warimak village by buying a teeshirt. I spent a few days anchored off the tiny remote village and organised an art competition at the school. I brought art supplies with me and let the kids go at it for a day then picked a winning design and put it on a teeshirt. I will personally take 100% of profits made from selling this item back to Warimak in early 2020 and give it to the school. They need all the help they can get and after seeing the amazing kids in this video I'm sure you'll see it for a good cause. :____________________________________________: https://teespring.com/stores/learningbydoing :____________________________________________: Become part of the crew and support my videos: https://www.patreon.com/vernondeck https://paypal.me/vernondeck?locale.x...

Ternate and neighbouring Tidore were the world's major producer of cloves upon which their rulers became among the wealthiest and most powerful sultans in the Indonesian region. Much of their wealth, however, was wasted fighting each other. There is a road circling the coast of the island and I rented a motorbike and drove the 42km, stopping every now and then when I spotted something interesting. The anchoring situation was pretty dicey and I never had much confidence that my boat would be there when I returned from land each day. Nice place and glad I visited.

Sailing, solo sailing or sailing with friends, I love it all. I take you for a ride as I sail solo between Tobelo and Morotei. This year I've had lots of visitors aboard and have really enjoyed the company but it was nice to finally be able to sail solo again as there is just something special about it. Its the coolest I come to feeling real freedom I think. I don't even have to think about sailing as its all instinctive and my mind goes into a very peaceful place.

I fell in love with Meti Island and its people during my visit, so much so that I extended my stay by a week. Such an innocent way of life there, smiling kids, laughing adults. Working hard each day but always together. This is the reason I brought my boat and started on this adventure, to see that there are still communities out there like this. Each day I spent walking around the island I was more accepted. The fact that I was taking pictures and then bringing back prints the next day showed them that I happy to give something back and the opened up a lot, to the point where a very old man stepped out into my path and asked me to take his and his wife picture. They had such big smiles and it just made my day. It was a very sad day when I had to leave and I will go back sometime.

After a very short night we got ready to climb to the Volcano crater in part 2 of the Dukono adventure. As our clothes had not had time to dry out and the climate on the mountain being very different than on the coast we spent a very cold few hours in the tent trying to sleep. Toby seemed to be doing fine as his bloody loud snoring proved to Maxi and I. We than had a quick coffee and begun the 90 min hike in the dark to the crater rim. The redhot lava that was being thrown hundreds of meters into the air was simply amazing as the was the sound! Impossible to capture the lava though as it was only visible in the dark. The amount of sandy ash being thrown up was amazing and it wasn't until it began to get light that I realised how much of it was getting on my camera, wow, big cleanup job needed after. We spent a few hours up there then slowly made our way back down to a small pool where we had a quick dip to get the ash off then continued on down to meet the motorbike boys again. At the bottom there is a pool with hot water directly from the mountain, we really enjoyed some time there to clean off but also relax the muscles after what was a very tough couple of days for this sailors skinny legs.

Dukono is one of the worlds most active Volcanos, erupting every few minutes. Maxi from Meti Cottage offed to guide my brother Toby and I up there. Who could turn down that offer?? We rented motorbikes to get us up through the lower coconut groves then set out of the 4 hour hike up the mountain. A crazy rainstorm hit us and we found shelter under a tarp for a while then continued. The rain raised the rivers and we battled them in very dangerous conditions. Arriving at our camping spot we were all pretty worn out but excited the the next morning. Life is for living!

My first overnight passage of the year is from Wayag in Raja Ampat over to Tobelo, a trip of some 170nm. I'm joined by my youngest brother Toby and we had some amazing sailing, caught some very tasty fish and arrived in Tobelo anchorage in fine form. The next day we spent exploring this rad little city full of smiling faces and "hey Misters". Life is good!

I return to Batanta with the beautiful Marie Morgan and together we are successful in finding the elusive waterfall from episode 84. A beautiful walk through pristine rain forest and then there it is, a cool pool to swim in surrounded by lush vegetation, loud birds and rushing water. Later we have a little problem with the dingy motor but sort it out pretty quickly. Enjoi!

A long day of sailing was rounded off nicely by a most beautiful sunset complete with double rainbow. A double strike by two stunning spanish mackerel also filled the freezer. Life is good!!!
