NAVIGATION & WEATHER WARNINGS

No navigation or weather warnings were received this morning, but please check the Safety at Sea notice board, next to the bathrooms - Red Light will be on if there are further Navigation and Weather Warnings for the day.
Last Wednesday we had a burgee handover and said goodbye to Sara, James, Jason and Dax as we bid them fair winds as they head off on Danzig onto their next big adventure.

They are currently off Port Alfred after drifting with the tide for the last 24 hours due to light breeze and engine issues. They now have a steady breeze and hope to dock in East London tomorrow ahead of the big winds forecast.

To Whom It May Concern:

Jean Tresfon - Marine Conservation Photographer

Rounding this iconic landmark we headed along the western shores of False Bay with quite a few boats out fishing near Rooikrans. From Smitswinkel Bay to Simonstown we investigated every shadow or splash but alas no orcas to be found. I made a turn overhead Roman Rock lighthouse to photograph the surrounding reef structure in the clean water and also flew overhead False Bay Yacht Club for a photo of a friend's boat.
