Location: Victoria and Albert Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa
After an early morning rounding of the Cape of Good Hope, we dropped anchor outside the harbor and waited for the sun to rise. We made it. 7,184 miles and 88 days after leaving Singapore, we have finally reached our destination. All the students seem to have a newfound confidence in their steps. We sailed across an entire ocean. We visited places most only read about. We even rounded the southernmost tip of Africa, a passage notorious for its difficulty. As Argo sits at the dock, there is also an air of sadness among the students as it finally sets in that our time aboard is coming to an end. I am happy to report that all the PSCT students have passed their exams, and a few will go on to complete their Master of Yachts 200 Ton exam in Durban. Today it’s time to pack up our things and return Argo to the pristine shape she was in, in Singapore. We look forward to finally getting home with plenty of stories and pictures to go around.
