Off to Rio




All good things have to come to an end and so did our stay at Cape Town as we crossed the start line along with 16 other boats for the Heineken Cape to Rio race at noon on 15 Jan. The stay at Cape Town, the second in a year, was memorable both for the boat and the crew. While the crew could re-charge their batteries at the "Tavern of the Seas", meeting up old friends & making new ones, the boat was treated to some TLC in terms of minor repairs and maintenance.

     It was great to be hosted by the Royal Cape Yacht Club who are also organizing the race. Info about the race and the club including photos & a tracker to see the positions of all the boats is available at www.rcyc.co.za & www.capetorio.heineken.com

        Looking forward to a good race and a fast passage to the much talked about city of Rio de Janeiro across the Atlantic.

Abhilash, Have you taken over as skipper ? I read somewhere on the net that was the plan. If so I suggest that you inform all the dormant followers of Mhadei and her exploits know by a suitable posting on this site !!!
