Days of Deja vu!

Anyone remember Jonathan Reid? He built a Hartley 28 in the 70s and sailed off from Simonstown in the 80s. Ended up in Hawaii after sailing much of the Pacific. He still lives in Hawaii - I have had some recent emails from him.

He has written a book called "Days of Deja Vu" - his boat's name. Its a great (true) tale of sailing, adventure, romance and growing-up all in one. It is a must for anyone interested in sailing adventures - I would describe it as a modern day version of Joshua Slocum's famous book - "Sailing Alone around the World", set a few decades later.

Wed night racing results

Almost a rerun of last week - nice steady S/Westerly, flat seas, and a great braai at the club later. Overall a very pleasant evening.

Wednesday Night Racing Results

Nice fresh southerly blowing! Despite an unusual start sequence with no yachts near the line, they all recovered very well and sailed an excellent competitive race, lead mostly by Megafreight. Faraway just pipped them over the line with 2 seconds to spare!

The Wednesday night braai at the club was good as always!
