Another night moored alongside! I saw Spurs lose to Manu yesterday and will see the Seagulls entertain the Saints this afternoon with a cold pint to hand in the club bar. Deep joy!
First though, about 10 boats are meeting for a lunch time braai with the local weather guy who helped us - and especially Sofia - with updates and advice. Des does it for free as a retirement hobby. What a star!
DC is in pretty good shape, but there are some service jobs - engine, the inevitable s/s etc. Also, we need to get the liferaft serviced and update the flares before we leave SA.
With Durban closed to new yachts, there's increased pressure here. The 15 or so boats on the World Arc will be here in a fortnight, quite apart from those others needing to get out of the cyclone zone N of here and get around to Cape Town. We may have to anchor for the week the Arc are here: we're not bothered.
The Club is very welcoming, with good food and ridiculous prices (cheap!) The mooring is a little under £6 a night, and since it's a catamaran berth, that's £2 more than I would pay if they had a big enough monohull space available.
The weather has been stormy, chilly, and wet while that system passed through, but the forecast is for sun and warmth this week, which is welcomed as we get back on top of those jobs.....and laundry.
UTA! - Give the Saints a hellish time!
