Faule Haut still in limbo at Tuzi Gazi Marina, Richard’s Bay, South Africa.
The worst is over (hopefully), but I’m not out of danger yet, until I get past Port Elizabeth.
I just watched a video clip about Des Cason, who is the South African router who helped me to make a safe passage from Réunion to Richard’s Bay. Over a period of 16 days, he supplied me with weather data and routing advices via satellite phone. He has been serving the sailing community for over four years now, supporting hundreds of ships to make a safe passage from Réunion to South Africa. Unbelievable – what he’s been doing for a few years now.
In this video he explains what turns this area into one of the most dangerous one of all the oceans – only second to Nova Scotia, Canada. Worse than the passage around Cape Horn. That guy is such a reliable dedicated person. I was his number 77 this year, that he helped to make it safely to the South African coast.
I’m happy to see that they honored him with an award. In case you are interested, watch this:
