Yes, and we had a fabulous trip! Hitched a ride on a Sundeer 56 that I found through some cruising friends in South Africa
. After a week in Walvis Bay, which included a short wildlife excursion, we had a beautiful 8 day sail to St Helena. Another week was spent exploring the incredible island of St Helena, swam with whale sharks, saw Napoleons place of exile and visited the "most remote
distillery in the world" where they make Tungi...not my favorite but the coffee liquor was delish! 25 days later we arrived in St Lucia
, had a great sail, good weather
and crew. Now the owners want the boat in Morocco
. The St Helena delivery
was probably the best and most memorable one of my career and I am looking forward to the further adventures of S/V Ethereal! Sorry to say to all the naysayers who gave me so much crap and interesting and many times wrong advice that I am happy to have gotten this totally awesome delivery, it's one I will never forget! To everyone with positive suggestions and sound advice, many thanks!
