Indulgence is the second entry for the 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 the year (who knows, she may even consider sailing 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 while my wife and I we sailing on the Vaal Dam. The selected crew were notified and all confirmed without hesitation, and 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 dreams a reality.”
What an adventure and a worthy indulgence! Welcome!
