Cape of Good Hope


It’s been pretty busy on here since we left Mauritius on Saturday. I thought it would be a nice, quiet cruise for a few days. Instead it’s been one thing after another. I haven’t really had any time to myself.

Today we’re sailing South of South Africa. We passed by Port Elizabeth a couple of hours ago, we’ll pass the Cape of Good Hope and Capetown sometime tonight or early tomorrow. I’m on the midnight til noon watch, so I’m hoping to be able to see something of it when we pass by. I hear the view from the ocean is beautiful.

I wonder if we’ll see anything of Africa before we reach Congo?

  1. More adventures Capt Jill! You inspire me … I’m still working on my website. It went kaput together with all my travel articles and photos. Back up yours.


    • Thanks Luz! Sorry to hear about losing your website and all your work. Have you tried using wordpress? I’m not sure how to back it up. Have any ideas on that?


    • we’re still working 12 hour days, only need 2 on the bridge at night so during the day we can get out and do other things like prepare the transponders, organize/inventory the documents room, etc. We have a LOT to do to get ready for our first job. Everything is new and lots of bugs to get worked out, procedures to get written, etc. Keeps us all plenty busy
