Approaching St Helena from the sea

At the moment if you want to land that is the only way to do it, but from 2016 we can expect the new airport to be open.

In this picture we are heading for Ruperts Bay on the left center and where Jamestown is, this is basically on the north side of the island and open to the swells from storms generated in the North Atlantic.

Picture by Roy McBride standing on the deck of Brer Terrapin and 13 days out from Cape Town, South Africa. The camera was a Canon FT 35mm film type. I was to find out quite recently that this was Brer Terrapins third visit to the island.
