Sail to Durban

On some nights you are sailing in pitch black darkness. On this trip, even though the sky was clear, and there were stars out, there was no moon and we could see little of the world beyond our cockpit, illuminated by the dim glow of the B&G displays. We spent our time watching the instruments and listening to the roar of the water past our hull.

Night Instruments
Here we have 29.9 knots of wind and 9.22 knots of boat speed. Too bad our SOG (not shown) is only 7.5! Where is that Agulhas Current?

Nav Station
Down below it is quiet and peaceful despite the excitement on deck.

Durban Harbor
Morning. We're here.

Wings in Durban Marina
We docked in the city.

School Boys on Wharf
And attract lots of attention.
