Around The World

Aboard Our Oyster 56

South Africa

By Andy Hilton | December 3, 2016

A long passage from Reunion to Richards Bay Zulu Land, South Africa.  Pushed ourselves hard to arrive before forecast of bad weather so were relieved to finally make land and moor up at the Yacht Club where we were welcomed with open arms and a bottle of sparkling South African Rose wine.  After 2 weeks we watched for a weather window for the next leg towards Cape Town and set off in the company of 4 yachts.  Enjoyed the wonderful big game wildlife in 2 different protected reserves and surprised just how close we could get to these wild animals.  Now in Mossel Bay enjoying yet another yacht clubs facilities and relaxing before the next weather window arrives.  Less than 400 miles to Cape Town where we will be until 6th January.
