Racing for the sword in Hout Bay

This was one of those Admiral Sword events that some on our boat should have taken my advice, it was simple, ' please take some sea sick pills' those who did were ok, a number laughed it off and fed the fishes.

Close racing around the mark boat, we were just off The Sentinal, its ok to anchor there if not a little deep?

The boat on the left is Pure Magic, is that a Sweet Pea? the other one is a Poppa Bongers designed Bongers 39, cold moulded and in wood, she was the last such boat built? Named Ghost Dancer, she was fitted out by the late Tony Page, from a bare hull at Suikerbossie here in Hout Bay  and did some quite extensive cruising, which includes a trip to England.
