This one's for you Anne!

Hello again from Wild Tigris,

After a ‘Wild’ time in Richard’s Bay and surrounding National Parks, we are on the Agulas again and heading to East London or Port Elizabeth if weather permits. We left Richard’s Bay at 1100 yesterday under blue sky and full sail of Gib, Staysail, Full main and mizzen. We averaged about 9.5 kts with the help of the S. going current but had to dodge back in to shallower waters to avoid a SW wind last night. We are currently back out in the current which seems to run strongest about 10-15Nm offshore, seaward of the 200m contour.

The locals at Richard’s Bay kept reminding us we sailing in Zululand, NOT Disneyland! With this thought, we are sailing conservatively and monitoring the weather every 12hrs. So far so good!

Hope you’re all well,

Sean, Casey, Heidi and Sofia.
