We weren't sure if I would be able to leave this morning. Just the night before, the bridge broke down and the engineer was away working on another bridge. The marina was determined to get me out that morning as planned so they arranged to have the part they needed flown down and had the guys working all night long. As it turned out, they couldn't get the part flown out until 8 o'clock that morning, so they ended up raising half of the bridge by hand, giving me just enough room to get out with out leaving my mast behind.
I haven't slept much the past few nights so I'm beginning to get a little tired. With all of the local shipping it will be a few nights till it will be safe to sleep in my bed. It's great to be back out here, I really missed it so much.
Thanks so much to Erik Bjerring from Cape Town for all your help - who knows how much we would have been able to get done without all your help! To Wiltel Marine: you guys have all been great and we are all grateful for everything you have done; for your support and for helping to get Wild Eyes and I out this morning.
Good bye Cape Town!
