Cape Town.

The two main suppliers of equipment for my S/V ‘Waratah’ project, Central Boating and C-Dynamics, are based in Cape Town. I thought it was a good idea to visit them while I was in South Africa, so I spent a few days on the Cape.

Cape Town is beautiful, with lots of buildings in old colonial style, and a very nice water front area. It was winter in South Africa, so there was a lot of rain, but with a temperature of about 18C during day time this was not a problem. The characteristic Table Mountain (Tafelberg) had its hat of clouds on most of the time.

I also saw a steel hull 3 mast square rigged sailing vessel in one of the dry docks. It’s the Dutch vessel ‘Europa’, and from what I could find out, it came to Cape Town in April after a trip to Antarctica.
