Pirates in South Africa

I arrived in Cape Town a week ago and had 3 full on days sailing.
Straight off the plane to the beach and it was 40+ knots. Overpowered
on a 4.0, hanging on! Not exactly the easy start I wanted to get
warmed up, but fun anyway. After 2 more days like that, the wind shut
off for a while, but it looks to be coming back soon, and with some
good sized swell too. Friday night was Ben Proffitts birthday so we
headed out to his Pirate Theme party. Turned out to be a lot of fun.
The best accessory was definitely the balloon parrots that phil made
for everyone, a nice touch.
