Cape Point

I have rounded Cape Point four times in the last few weeks. Its an amazing spectacle - like Hout Bay and Chapmanspeak, one never tires of it! Its also a good test of navigation - there are rocks, reefs and kelp to avoid. Not to mention some bouncy water . . . pick yer weather wisely!

Cape Point at 11:30 on 19 October 2011, viewed from a 44' Cat we were delivering.

Here we have Chris Sutton (in the red) in a rare moment where he wasn't bumping his poor bald head. Tojan Winterbach, normally an airline pilot, is at the wheel, trying to get used to  4 knots instead of 400 knots!
