Cape Town to Tortola - Mid December

19 October 2009
John in sunny Cape Town
We arrived back in Cape Town before the Annapolis Boat Show had even started, which was a pity as both Hardy and I would have liked to have a good mooch around the show to see what was new. Ah well, maybe next time!

I am having a bit of a break whilst Hardy is preparing for his first delivery of a 46' Leopard to Tortola. I wish him well and know he will be a good delivery skipper.

My next delivery is scheduled for mid December and should be a 46' Leopard from Cape Town to Tortola. This one I am especially looking forward to as my 1st Mate will be Louis Makendlana, the Logistics Manager for TUI Marine (South Africa) in Cape Town, a great guy who is eager to do a long trip. Also on board will be my partner, Joy, who has never ventured on board one of the delivery boats. It will be an experience for her as she has now retired and will get a firsthand look at what I have been doing for all the years. I am still looking for a crew member for the delivery and hope to have that position filled in the next couple of weeks.

Our route will be from Cape Town to the island of St Helena. Then on to Sint Maarten for a short stop before sailing on to Tortola.

Summer has arrived in Cape Town with the days getting warm and the sun is up until quite late. I have a number of tasks which I am undertaking at home, which is keeping me busy and out of mischief. So, I will only post the next blog update around mid November.

In the mean time may you all keep well and, for those out there sailing, let the wind always blow in the right direction. John
