Indulgence is our second entry for Cape to Rio 2020.
She is a Stadt 34 and has been a Vaal Dam boat all of her life…
All that is about to change in a big way as she embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. She will be transported to Durban in early 2019, before being sailed down to Cape Town later in 2019 [who knows, she may even consider sailing in one of the official Cape to Rio 2020 Qualifying Races – the Vasco da Gama Race 2019, from Durban to Port Elizabeth in April]. In the meantime, the boat will be prepared for measurement and ORC certification, and will be one of the first on the Vaal to certify.
Owner, Hubert Saayman, explains: “The dream was born on the 9th of July 2017 whilst my wife and I were sailing on the Vaaldam. The selected crew were notified and all confirmed without
hesitation, so the journey began. Skipper / person in charge will be Roux Gerber, currently based in Cape Town leaving for the Caribbean later this year, navigator / entertainer will be Wynand Grové joined by our chef and deck-hand José da Silva and myself Hubert Saayman making all of our dream a reality.”
What an adventure and a worthy Indulgence! Welcome!
