|Crew:||David and Brooke Atkinson|
|About:||David and Brooke reside in St. Louis and enjoy sailing (duh!), music, history and traveling. Brooke is a wonderful cook and David is an adequate guitarist. They signed up for an Admiral 38 in 2005. By waiting until 2008 for delivery, they were upgraded to the new Admiral 40.|
We arrived 3 a.m. on September 22 and left two and a half days later. We met up with the crew of the Moorings 47 that we beat to Fortaleza--we gave them a 24-hour head start from St. Helena and beat them by 4 hours. Good guys and good sailors but they had no spinnaker or code zero.

Table Mountain runs east to west through the heart of Cape Town, South Africa--the city wraps around it. It rises almost vertically to 3500 feet. The combination of this mountain, the city and the sea make Cape Town one of the most picturesque cities in the world. When the fog rolls in and drapes over and down the mountain, they say it is setting the table.
