David - the captain - has just won SA sailing championship in the Finn class. A master pilot and a warm guide. His crew - Wusi - very warm and helpful. Magnificent views and surprisingly good complimentary food onboard. We had a great evening!

No words to describe how special this was. If you've never done it before, add it to your bucket list. We had a fantastic cruise through the Knysna heads. We had good food and a perfect sunset. Fantastic!!! Would love doing it again. Worth it!!!
