10.06.2018 - News Update - Pelagic Australis arrives Cape Town for Refit  - Delivery Trip Report and revised Pelagic syllabus - Whats on offer in 2018/19

Pelagic Australis arrived into Cape Town on June 1st riding into town on an 8 meter swell in 50 knots of wind. Nice way to finish and all well on board. Their 20 day passage from the Falkland Islands was more or less downwind as expected, but they only managed a sail past of Tristan da Cunha as it was too rough in the open roadstead to anchor or land. That is always a 50% chance of success.

The end of season 42 day project has always been popular and has evolved over the years. It has always included a course of study, a cruise (now in the Falkland Islands) and the deep water passage across the South Atlantic. Within our five day Pelagic Syllabus we are now offering as an optional extra the RYA Ocean Yacht Master Exam which concentrates on celestial navigation and ocean weather. This course is conducted by RYA (Royal Yachting Association) instructor and examiner Alan Denham who has been with us for the last four years. Click here for the new syllabus description>>
