HBYC boats head South for "Spring"!

Sunday 08:00. Hout Bay recedes at 5kts on a beautiful Sunday morning.
Somewhere in that mist Nandi and Savannah are heading out too.
 

 Cape Point appears on the port bow at 11:50.
Conditions are extraordinarily calm.

Here is the pointy-bit itself. Nandi had three folk rounding for the first time.
Couldn't be nicer conditions.
 
Quest took 7 hours into Simonstown harbour, used 16 litres of fuel, averaged 5.1 knots. No sails were used or harmed in any way in the making of this documentary. Hopefully they will come in useful during Spring Regatta this weekend, 22-24 Sept at FBYC.
