The Fast Track to RYA Yachtmaster Offshore programme started this year with a full complement. Both Cape Storm and Benguela will be doing the mileage trip to Durban and back in a week’s time. Or sooner, depending on the weather window.
Meanwhile the crew are very relieved to have completed all the theory modules which is nobody’s favourite way to spend 2 weeks: sweating over charts and almanacs, and studying collision regulations. Now the fun part – sailing, sailing and sailing some more.
