72. The Big Blue
I’m getting ready to go in a couple of days. I have already checked out of Panamá so technically I guess I’m an illegal alien here in the anchorage. But I have no more need to go ashore.

Well congrats but dissapointed with the fishing after everything i tried to teach you looks like we will have to come to the carib to give you a refresher course on how to fish,not lose nets,how to put clicker on and drag settings !!! All the best amigo
Thanks my friends. Your lessons were great. And we only dragged the line when we wanted fish. Happy to take a refresher class though. You are so welcome on Saoirse anytime. And I would love to teach you sailing. Would love to see you two as students rather than teachers! Take care of each other. You are truly a special couple. Tomas
Tom the man I love your blog, enjoy reading it, your photos are super! Carpe Diem my friend! Best Olli A

Hello there you all at the boat ,
I, Hectors grandmother and Björn came here to SouthAfrika, 40 km from Cape Town, a week ago. We were looking for warm and sunny weather but not the 35 degrees we had the other day and next weekend it will be around 40!!.
Such days we don’t spend at the golfcourse.
However wheather change very quickly with some rainshowers announced tomorrow and around 26. Golfcompetition is at the schema.
Today we have visited 3 vineyards, tested wine and had lunch. Wine is a very big industri here and most of the wines keep high standard.
We follow your further aventures and are very glad for the beatiful photos. Hector I can still recognice you!!
All the bests from us / Margarete and Björn
