4 weeks at sea!

So the plan is to sail up to Durban and back for our mileage trip. Currently we are leaving Cape Town. We just pulled in for about 2 hours to fix our wind hawk or wind vein. (It's the little arrow on top of the mast that indicates where the wind is coming from) we got some new fenders for the boat as well so we are nice and pretty now! ;) we left at about 6:30 last night and I was on the helm first so I had to pull the boat out of the slip and sail for the first 3 hours. We had the thickest fog I've ever seen all night long!! It was so creepy I was waiting for pirates of the Caribbean ghost ship to show up any minute. We had no wind so we motored the whole way from Mykonos to Cape Town. Today we are gonna have too much wind. We are rounding cape point today with 30-40 knots of wind I think. Should be quite fun! ;)
