Greetings from Cape Town

Greetings all
My name is Andrew Roth. I live in Cape Town, South Africa and am the oner of a 45 foot ketch. She is 30 years old and in need of some TLC which she has received from me for the last 4 years since I aquired her. I live on board most of the time and intend taking her into the wide blue ocean in about four years time. Perhaps to the Seychelles where my parents live and work as missionaries for the Anglican Church.

I look forward to communicationg with all of you and invite you to visit me when you find yourself in these waters. Guests are always welcome to sleep over on Lemara. She accomodates 6 with ease.

Regards

Andrew

Hi Andrew,
Wecome! I have to tell you we spent a month on two occasions in Cape Town, sailing with friends and enjoying the wonderful city. We had several meals at the Cape Royal Yacht Club.
Do you know of an eatery named, Nero's Pizza? I have no idea if they are still in exixtence.

Hi Andrew
I am getting off a rig ship in Cape Town on Feb 1 or 2nd (all depends on the weather after Mauritius). I will only be in town for 36 hrs or so. Where do all the cruising boats hang out? I was in Cape Town a couple of times last year, but again for only a short time, hopping on and off rigs. I went to V&A Waterfront but of course the only boats were charter yachts. I would like to kick some tyres while I'm there before heading back to Pelican in OZ. I have no interest on jumping in a cage with chum and getting up close & personal with Great Whites.

Can you or any other 'Boks suggest marinas close to the centre of the city.

thanks

Re: Greetings from Lagos

Greetings all and thank you for the kind welcomes and notes.

I have been off the site for some time. Not sure when most of the questions were posted and apologies for not replying in time.

In a generic answer though:
Lemara is moored in a little fishing village called Hout Bay: Hout means Wood in the local vernacular. Other mooring spots include Royal Cape, Simons Town and Gordon's Bay. The latter two are pretty much in a world of their own, being far removed from the cityscape of Cape Town.

While Royal Cape in in the heart of the city and within easy access to the V & A waterfront and other amenities, Hout Bay is a little out of the main city precinct. The village is on a bus route however, both as a tour bus or a suburban scheduled bus service. The trip to the village along Victoria Road via Camps Bay is beautifully scenic. The village of Hout Bay lies at the edge of the continent and can be both most enjoyable or a terrible place to be. And there is no predicting when the weather will change from one condition to the other. The South Easter can whip up a storm in a wink and what was a wonderful morning can turn into a wicked afternoon. And if you are at sea, may the gods be with you. I have sailed out on a sunny Saturday morning in a 10 knot breeze and returned a few hours later in a 60 knot gale.

Hout Bay has many eateries ranging from fish and chips to 5 star fare. Entertainment is plentiful and markets abound.

Come and visit.

Re: Greetings from Cape Town

Hi Andrew

I will be in Cape Town in mid September preparing for a delivery of a Leopard 44 to Trinidad.

I will be needing to purchase a couple of re-arm kits (Mustang MA7214) for my pfd. Mine have expired and I can avoid the hassle of travelling with them. Can you direct me to a marine store that will carry them?

Thanks

Jack

Re: Greetings from Cape Town

Greetings Jack
Cape Town has a number of places to acquire marine requirements. Seaport is the most friendly, well stocked and accommodating. Tel: (021) 510-6262 eMail: cape@seaport.co.za

Hope this helps

Regards

Andrew
