Bye Bye Cape Town

30 October 2010 | Cape Town
For the last time ...for a long time to come...I had the longest hot shower since we came on is amazing that I never felt the urge until this morning when I realised...this is it...we will have to be careful with fresh spite of the water maker....

Thanks to all the well wishes for fair winds and calm seas...that is exactly how we started!! Great site that we leave behind...and I must say...I liked the idea that Yvonne had last just stay in the Marina for another 2 years and do the little day sails...that way we can all have some fun...enjoying each other's off times and I will not get no nausea or sea legs that can bother me....

We are fueled up and on the way out...we met by 3 amazing whales...the last of the Capetonians to wave us Bon Voyage...such a thrilling experience has to be a good sign of what's to come!

Ok...I am sitting in the cockpit doing this blog and updating the website...and although I have beautiful Cape Town still in site...the rolling waters are still not exactly great for the stomach! I am supposed to look at the if you think I am a bad speller/typist...not true - I have my eyes on Table Mountain to prevent keyboard spills!

The days to come will be my crash course in many aspects of yachting and sailing....and I am sure also in how to stay unfazed by big voices that shouts orders....and I will learn....and I will get it right...! Nothing beats trying!!!
