South Africa, East Coast

Does anyone have information on sailing from Richards Bay to CapeTown (with the Agulhas current) along the eastern and southern South African coast? Things to be aware of, anchorages or ports along the way, places to avoid, etc. Not having a chart handy at the moment, what is the distance in nautical miles, and how much time is it reasonable to plan for making that leg of the trip in Feb. 2009?
