Off the beach in Hout Bay

We had a strong NW yesterday, by evening it was gone and cool but the bay was quiet flat, this large cat stayed all night and is still there this morning, not very often we see this!

Size matters, I have just spoken to one of the crew, this boat is 82 feet long!
The boats name is On Verra.

This morning we have rain, the catamaran is safe enough in these conditions, be aware that in most conditions and that means any winds from the East, South East and South West, its safer to enter the harbour close by and take a berth on the HBYC marina.

VHF radio is not normally replied to, you may get a reply if I happen to be on a boat and with channel 16 on.

CKD Boats cc can offer catamaran kit from 35ft to 55ft in designs by Angelo Lavranos and Dudley Dix, build it yourself and live your dream!
