The Journey Continues

John
Since delivering Ultima Life to Cape Town, she has been used buy the owner and his family on a regular basis. I, on the other hand have been pottering around at home and doing some boat work for owners at the various marinas in and around Cape Town. My last project was to assist the Australian owner of the new Leopard 46 "Scolamanzi" prepare his boat for the first big sail - crossing the Atlantic from Cape Town to Chaguaramas, Trinidad. Scolamanzi is really a fantastic boat and now well fitted and equipped. She is due to depart Cape Town at the end of this month (October).

At the same time as Scolamanzi departs, I should be departing on the same route with Ultima Life - Cape Town to St Helena to Chaguaramas.

As I write this blog entry, Ultima Life is being used by the factory as a "show boat" on the Cape Town International Boat Show in the V&A Waterfront Marina, which ends later today. From next week I will start to get her prepared for the delivery and slowly provision her for a 4-up crew. At the moment I have to still find a fourth person to help on the delivery, which I should have sorted out by the end of next week.

So, that is what is happening in this part of the world at the moment. More updates closer to the departure date of 1 November.
