Under Sail from Reunion
Deon Erwin ZS1ZL
06/06/2009

The two catamarans departed from Reunion and are under sail to Mahe, Seychelles. The Leopard 46 is skippered by John and the Leopard 40 is skippered by Miles Webb.

The two boats will sail in close proximity and maintain VHF radio contact as a matter of safety. The daily positions of the two boats are also reported to the Coalition Navy on patrol in that part of the ocean and a close eye will be kept on their safe passage.
