Followed basic the same route ... it is called big boat fever ... it is heavily contagious .. :biggrin:

Started with hobie ... on to a Holiday23 on the Vaal Dam ... man that is a gem of a place to have up there ... you can go sailing for days ... then a big boat will lot of happy miles ... there are worse fevers to get than big boat fever ... just relax , take it on the chin and reach for  your children's inheritance money ... that is the only thing that keep the fever under control   :biggrin:

Thats so funny!

Here is a pic - I believe your noat might be the one on the right? Pic taken 9th July this year.
We saw you on Saturday night/Sunday morning - we were in a sand-coloured square house on the right of Rose bay as you leave - 3 properties up from where you were moored - we were sitting on the veranda watching you leave - did you per chance get grounded a little before you hoisted the main-sail?

We were discussing the advantages of a sail-boat over a house, mooring costs etc.....

Haha! you can run but you can't hide!

yeap that was us, SuziQ-left, Indulgence-middle and Chinnok-right. I have made some very good friends on the vaal, great bunch of people.

Nope i didn't grounded it that day, but did touch the bottom this last weekend :pot: I usually set off without the motor and this weekend I was a bit slow in hoisting the main sail so got blown back a little to far, also instuments where set incorrectly for the depth. :imaposer:

Beautiful places along the shore line.

My procedure was to see Snr Paulo to do check, he then wrote a letter which I took to Inamar and paid cruising permit. Then purchased fishing permit at fisheries.

We launched at Clube de pesca by the roundabout, reasonably priced and you can leave your vehicle and trailer inside, also spent first and last evening on the boat at the Marina and the rest of the time on anchor around the islands.

Costs ? And to tow - what was the issues?
What is the best time to do this?

Border procedures weren't to bad, approached Hollard Insurance for third party and they assisted with all the paper work, just make sure that you have all your trailer papers and boat papers with you, I had a plastic folder file that had all the registration papers for car/trailer/boat in it and all that paperwork seemed to confuse one official at the border that wanted to extract a bribe.

At the Marina the costs where as follows, R100 per night that the boat spent at the marina and R50 per day each for the car and trailer, launching fees was R200.

Cruising permit cost +/-R1000 valid for a month.

Fishing permit was about R100 per person for the month.

Only other cost was a tourist permit for the islands that was about R50 for the month.

Other than this all we had to do was to have a good time.
