Docked at Cape Town
After leaving Réunion on the 8th of Nov. 2019 her Skipper Ingo knew, that a tough passage would be coming up. But it exceeded his expectations. But all this is a thing of the past now. He is happy up to the max., that he could pick up his crew Immanuel in Durban and sail with him safely to Cape Town where they arrived this morning.
The first two days from Durban on where difficult and they were facing high winds twice up to 45 knots but afterwards, they where in good weather and had a calm and easy cruise to Cape Town.
Unfortunately, the crew can only stay there for three nights, before heading to the Caribbean, because Immanuel had booked his flight from Martinique to Germany already, they have to reach Martinique on the 7th of February 2020. This deadline gives them 53 days for the passage to the Caribbean. So they have to move on to make it in time.
Some repair jobs have to be done on Faule Haut and provisioning for the Atlantic crossing is due. Too sad, there will only be little time for sightseeing.
Especially the skipper is looking forward to having a few nights of good sleep, like you landlubbers can enjoy every night.
You have got to watch these seals. They even try to sneak on your boat, like this on on a neighboring catamaran.
