My weekend has been filled with reading, research and dreaming….about a South Atlantic circuit.
Leaving early December – Cape Town – Luderitz – Walvis – St Helena. Then on to Fernando de Norha, Recife and south down the Brazilian coast. A summer season in the islands of Bahia de Ilha Grande sounds grand and then further south to the Rio del Plata estuary, either Uruguay or Argentina, to refit the boat in preparation for the return voyage back home passing by Tristan on the way. It’s an ambitious plan, one that can be accomplished in 4-5 months but one that is probably more relaxed and enjoyable being done over 2 seasons at least.
A plan worth working towards!
I can’t help thinking I’m getting a little ahead of myself here though.
Let’s just take this one step at a time. Baby steps. For now, to find the time for a circumnavigation of Robben Island, to hang out on the anchor in House Bay – these will be challenge enough.
