After nearly 6000 nautical miles sailed and 8 countries later we finally make landfall on the mainland continent of Africa!! At 01:00 on December 2nd 2021 we tied Skylark to the quarantine dock in Richards Bay, South Africa. It’s difficult to express in words the joy we felt stepping off onto that dock for the first time. The notorious Mozambique Channel is now behind us! …little did we know the Indian ocean was saving its toughest conditions for the last stretch(coming up in the next video!)
We featured our good friend Markus in this video and his incredble story of circumnavigating the planet without using a single form of motorized transport. Check out his website at: www.routesofchange.org.
