Before leaving South Africa on an extended World cruise we decided to do a shake down cruise. We did a round trip to Madagascar, stopping in Mazambique and Mayotte. As a result of this cruise we realized many shortcomings undertook many changes that have taken the best part of 17 months to achieve. The boat is now 1m longer, the keels and rudders have been modified, a new furling mainsail fitted, a larger battery bank and extra solar panels fitted.
