Sailing in Mauritius in 2003 changed our perception of sail boats. The focus therefore shifted from motor boats to sail boats. We bought a Holiday 23 after completing our Yacht Hand and Day Skipper licence with Ocean Sailing Academy in Durban in 2006. We sailed her on the Vaaldam and the dream to go Ocean sailing was born. Ntombi was bought with the aim to sail her on the big Oceans, spreading the Good News of Jesus. Coastal Skipper qualifications were acquired through Cape Good Hope sailing in Cape Town.

We were very fortunate to be sailing in Cape Town Harbour at the start of the Volvo harbour race. Even more fortunate to meet Laura Dekker, the youngest sailor to do a circumnavigation.
