Sweet Dream - Friday January 10, 2019

Last day in SA. Easy check out. First we went to the immigration counter where they fingerprinted and photographed us, then we visited the customs counter in the same building where two of our forms were stamped and signed. Captain offered the enormous stack of paperwork that we’d been given by the WARC to fill out, but the young lady wouldn’t even glance at them, just smiled and said, “you don’t need that.” We’ll, better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Afterwards we turned in our yacht club card, chatted with the Ice Bear crew, who’s boat was on the slipway in the yard for rudder bearing repair. We ubered back to the V and A marina in time to check out with Josh, the manager. What an excellent place this marina is! Clean, tidy, friendly, all the amenities you could need, and visually stunning. My most favourite marina of the world arc rally. After small deliberation, Lars and I decided this was second only to Amsterdam Nord out of all the marinas we’ve ever been to. We hosted a small happy hour with the crews from Nimbus, Niobe, Atla, and Odeline, then went out to eat at the V and A food court where to complete the magical evening our favourite duo, Didi and Jules were playing! We ate our Hungarian supper then danced under the big moon and twinkling Christmas lights. Towards the end of the evening Lars even coaxed Molly then Blanca to dance with him. What a fun last night in Capetown!
