Freedom of Hamble
Still PO/SA!

Just a brief note ... Charles is on his way back from Cape Town now, "Starfire" having had her bottom scraped and antifouled, engine checked, some woodwork sanded and varnished, new mainsail cover, nav lights replaced etc., I spoke to him at 9am today and he was somewhere off Jacobsbaai (he thought!), he hopes to be into the river late afternoon, there was a big swell running but by the time he gets into the Bay here, it should be a lot quieter. Public holiday tomorrow, so hopefully, we will get out for a sail. In the meantime, we will gather with P and B for slupper with some of the mates to celebrate whichever public day it is!!! Cheers all, check you later.

Berg River Port Owen SA

Don't have a pic of "Starfire" our Freedom 33, she is heading out this morning early on route to Table Bay and Cape Town, for her annual checkups and works to be done. Charles should have reasonable weather over the next 24 hours... hopes to overnight at Dassen and then onto C.T by Saturday afternoon.

Thanks for showing us what home looks like. Starfire looks splendid and we hope that Charles has a safe sail to RCYC. Keep up the entries, it is so good for our morale. Love from the 3 Musketeers

As they say Sooze,sailing is not a matter of life or death,its far more important. Thanks for taking these pics of my baby.

Alan looking as though he knows what he's doing!

Out on the Bay
02/19/2012, st Helena Bay SA

What a magnificent weekend weatherwise.... the West Coast at it's best, lovely sailing breeze coming in from the north, crystal clear atmosphere and flat seas....... we were out both days. Saturday I was photographer for Al B who was out on Mia checking out her new mailsail before we took off for a sail across to Stompneous and back. Also got some decent shots of Windward who was out having a lovely time. Today was gentler, but beautiful, and to finish off the day, a dolphin accompanied us back to the entrance to the harbour!
