Aboard Our Oyster 56

Christmas and New Year in Cape Town

By Andy Hilton | January 7, 2017

We’ve enjoyed a great time here in Cape Town and saw the New Year in with a party on the pontoon with all the other yachts and fireworks at the Waterfront.  A spectacular  setting with Table Mountain on our doorstep.  Christmas day celebrations started early in the morning with mince pies and mulled wine on the pontoon, a superb lunch in a nearby restaurant then back to the pontoon for afternoon drinks and champagne.  No body can remember much more about the day !! except that we did try to watch the queens speech.  New Years Day we took a picnic to a concert in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and yes we all made it despite having celebrated the New Year with some of the crew falling into their bunks at 5am.  A fantastic and memorable time.
