Searching for a cure  

 

 

"Hi all.........what a ride! Wet, bumpy and bruising, but I am so happy to have got it done safely. I want to thank everyone for the support, which has come in many many different ways.
 
Specifically I would like the thank the overnight "shore support" of Gerard, Jaeda, Kirst, Mands and Els....great company and kept me going through the night, thank you guys!
 
Also to thank my Mum and Dad for the similar support during the trip....its was needed. There will be a full report to follow, once I have got myself sorted out, rested and put together the footage I took during the trip....sadly however I didnt get a picture of the flying fish! But brought back one or two in the boat!....Thank you again one and all for your support and pledges, its been worthwhile for Chaya and everyone that has Vitiligo!"

Did You Know

 

"Cockpit" seems to derive from the pit where cock fighting took place.

 

In fact the cockpit at sea was an area below decks where in battle a surgeon performed his grisly task.

 

Lord Nelson died below decks in Victoria's "cockpit"

The Leopard 4700 is a superb air conditioned catamaran from the designers of Robertson & Caine in South Africa that combines style, performance, quality and comfort. 

Interior Features

A U-shaped galley with refrigeration combined with the dining area makes preparation and catering on board a pleasure.

The well laid out interior has four guest cabins with queen size beds, ample storage and fans to cool you down if you prefer the breeze to air conditioning.  Each guest cabin has an ensuite shower and head.

 

The generator and air conditioning will keep you comfortable in any weather. 

Exterior Features

Apart from accommodating a full crew comfortably in the cockpit for dinner or relaxing , there is a large swim platform with easy walk through access to the cockpit 

 

A full bimini provides great shade from the hot Caribbean sunshine.
