First week on my boat. Lots of cleaning and scrubbing this past week. Went for a gentle shakedown sail yesterday. Always surprises me after a few months away how clumsy and disorganised I become. The first
couple of sails just seem to involve more swearing and painfull bumps into things. Going out later this morning and hoping for a more calm and peacefull " ambience " on the boat   :lol8:

Plan was to sail to Dangerbay today and overnight there at anchor, try a bit of fishing etc
Left at about 11H00 and had a very nice sail there with about 3m swell running. As I got near Dangerbay entrance the waves just look massive and breaking there. Went around this whole lot thinking inside it will be sheltered with flat water at the red arrow on the pic. Not so .Still too big a swell running  for me to safely spend the night at anchor there .Overnighted twice before there. 
The decision was made to sail back to my mooring. Trip was 40 km . Caught a lekker, what I think, is a blue fin tuna on my rapala.

Dit is toe n bonita wat die rapala gehak het.

Plenty of truth in that. I have been out on the water with other boats in the past here only to hear them talk about the big swells and wind etc afterwards in the bar. Even heard the wives were fearing for their lives that day. There was hardly any swells just some choppy water kicked up by the wind. Okes last year back from the Mosselbay race also told about the waves higher than their 3 spreader masts and I cannot remember now how many mast touching the water knockdowns they had.
I am convinced sailors and fisherman are one of a kind true bullshitters  :spitcoffee:

Waar is die pic en het jy hom geeet?

Ek het hom opgesny en in jiffy sakkies in die deepfreeze gesit. Dit was nou nie so n indrukwekende vis dat ek foto geneem het nie. Het net so n uur voor donker op my mooring gekom en toe moes ek gou die vis skoonmaak voor dit donker is. Snaakse vleis. Dit lyk soos n tuna se vleis maar so n pienkerige kleur. Vis het nie eintlik skubbe gehad nie met n redelike taai vel. Gaan netnou weer uit. Wil vandag net met my roller furler seil wat ek nog nooit so sonder die main gedoen het nie. Soos ek hoor is dit blykbaar nie n baie lekker eetvis nie.

Getting in and out of Saldanha bay can be terrifying and I was talking to the masters of 200 000 ton bulk carriers as well as the Port Captain Table Bay who had been a Saldanha bay pilot previously..

It all depends on the wind and tide at the time your crossing.

It was bred for racing, after all. It will devour rear tires and its lust for fuel will astound you. It will suffer indifference and carelessness very poorly.

Never had a scary experience exiting  or entering  Saldanha bay. I pick my weather windows carefully for my little boat. There is always a bigger swell at the entrance in the Jutten Island area. I can imagine it can get real scary there  but hope to never experience it.

What were you doing awake at 12.41am?

You are on holiday. You should have been sleeping like a baby, gently rocked by the waves and without a care in the world :lol8:
For the love of it.

I sleep in shifts,waking up in the middle of the night every night.  Yesterday and last night we had a bit of a storm going which only abated in the early morning hours. Still I made a lekker dik chicken soup on the gimballed gasplate yesterday. Wind was pumping /howling and the boat jumping and rolling  :spitcoffee:

Gisteraand 2 stukke van die vis in die pan gebak met botter. Eers so n halfuur  met Walkerbay se fish seasoning bo oor laat le en toe stadig in botter gefry. As ek weer so n vis vang sal ek net dit kleiner opsny. Kon net eenstuk gisteraand opeet. Het die ander stuk vanaand opgeeet. Vis het verbasend lekker uitgekom. Ek was bekommerd oor die stukke so dik was dat ek dit  te gaar maak of die vis sal wild proe. Afgesluk met n soetwyntjie  :ricky:
Voel definitief meer motivated om bietjie meer effort in die visvangery te sit.
