Now we head north-west around Cape of Good Hope and on to Cape Town where we hope to arrive before sunset tomorrow.
It is a gybe like any other. Walter takes the wheel and I manage the sheets. There is 15 kn of breeze from behind and the gybe itself is smooth as silk. But this is no ordinary gybe because it marks the most southerly point of Anjea’s current course. For the next few years we will be heading north. This gybe also marks our transition from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic. This a first for me – my first sight of the Atlantic.
