Almost there.

We catch the ferry overnight on Friday to Portsmouth, drive up to Heathrow and fly out Saturday night to Capetown. Hire a car and 14 hours later we'll be in Luderitz.

I have my new 2013 Hotsails gps 5.5 and 6.0 already and pick up the 5, 5.2 and 5.8 in Luderitz (hopefully) also new Black Project X 40, 45 and 50's.

I am taking 4 booms, 2 boards and enough masts for all the sails.

I rigged up the 5.5 and 6 the other day and filmed it with my iPhone, video attached. Only one thing to say, "we are ready, big time".

The last week has been torture watching the records tumble however at the moment next Wednesday's forecast is for the strongest wind yet. Tuesday warm up and Wednesday watch out.

I'll post every day if I can get an Internet connection.

Wish me luck.
