A WALK TO THE AFRICAN PENGUINS (VIDEO)

06 February 2012 | Simonstown, South Africa

This was a most amusing visit...to the relatively rare African Penguin. As mentioned in the video they were once known as "jackass penguins", a rather derogatory sounding name to such a wistful and comic creature. They usually pair up for life and spend the day next to or in close proximity to their mate.
As for what's ahead. The South Atlantic promises to be a kinder ocean than its neighbor the Indian is and has been for most of us circumnavigating . But, Im not shouting that too loudly as....well, you know, the moment one expects something....nature and life have a way of surprising one.
That having been said, however, Im hoping for SE trade winds to blow me from Cape Town to St Helena Island...from the back... which is the most comfortable point of sail for long hauls. It is a distance of about 1600 miles and then another 3600 miles, to the Caribbean Islands. So, long ocean passages ahead.
The spirit of Napoleon awaits us at St Helena....the place of his exile.

About:
Mango is a smart, funny, sensitive and totally unique wheaton/sheepdog. . He is my partner on this patently undoglike voyage but remains cheerful about the whole affair. [...]
Extra: Shearwater is a 47 foot, very sleek and light catamaran. She is part of a fleet of 11 that were built - its a sister ship of Shearwater that holds the unofficial speed record. 31 knots! Of the this fleet, only one has flipped...so we are on the side of good odds!
