Cape Town at last

By AlithiaNo Comments

After 20 days at sea, and some pretty good weather routing between two weather systems, we arrived into a fog bound Cape Town where Alithia will be staying for some down time. This gives the crew a chance to fix the boat after a tough 6500 miles at sea which unfortunately caused some damage. We will be getting all the sails off and serviced, the boat cleaned and all the broken parts mended from the trip. While there we will be lifting her out of the water to replace the thruster door with a new improved stronger solution. We will also have the opportunity to complete repairs to the keel bulb after an unscheduled encounter with the seabed!
