The coastline between Cape Town
and Durban isn't the happiest of playgrounds. Try and avoid cruising in this area in the southern hemisphere winter, when cold fronts / lows ravage the coast. It can be tricky to catch a suitable weather
window, unless of course you don't mind to play around Cape Town or are up to rough waters. Your predominant south westerlies raises the wave action from norteasterly swells in the Aghullas current
, making life very uncomfortable. If caught out in a storm, you're restricted in the number of safe harbours or bays available - the stretch between East London and Durban is particularly dangerous.
