Headed South

I will take the plunge and head South tomorrow.

There are really only five spots to duck into on the way down. 17 S - Perlas Islands, 18 S -Quelimane, 21.5 S - Bazaruto, 24 S - Inhambane, and 26 S- Inhaca. We will see how far I can make it with this upcoming window. The goal is Bazaruto. If the weather stays, I keep moving. Inhambane to Richard´s Bay is the critical zone. Weather for the coast can be obtained here.

Three boats have lost their engine use in the past week on this passage. One from a lost propeller caused by colliding with a whale!

If there isn´t a post within a month, contact Roy at the Royal Natal Yacht Club as he runs the Peri Peri Net.
