Annapolis Next Delivery

25 June 2009
John
My previous delivery to the Seychelles was not a good one for myself - I developed a severe chest cold and a high fever just after we departed Port Elizabeth, which lasted for two weeks. I must admit that I did loose quite a bit of weight as well but am now back "up and running" again.

The main thing is that we arrive safely in Mahe and spent a week in the hot and humid conditions cleaning the boat and seeing a bit of the island before flying back home to Cape Town.

The trip was also the last one that Luke will be my 1st Mate. No, we have not had a "fall-out" - Luke is now a highly qualified skipper after passing his examinations at the beginning of the year and now will be delivering boats as Master - well done to him!

Right, now lets look into the future a bit - on Monday June 29 my next boat was launched in the Elliott Basin in Cape Town harbour. It is hull #1 of the new Leopard 38 sailing catamarans and I will be delivering her to Annapolis for the next boat show. There will be four persons on board for the 7200 odd nautical mile delivery, which should take about seven weeks to complete. The handover of the boat from the factory to TUI Marine is scheduled for Monday July 13 and we should be ready to depart about a week after that.

In the mean time, I am taking a weeks break up in the mountains near the town of Clanwilliam, about three hours drive north of Cape Town. I will update the blog once I return - John.
