The ONLY way in which you can reclaim your bell is to send a sailing team to take . . .

On the morning of 27 February 2015 morning we witnessed those anxious birthing moments as Peter Bean returned his yacht Sea Wolf to the water. A 130 ton crane was roped in to do the deed and the 23 ton Sea Wolf was lifted with ease. http://youtu.be/vgkjB2nbyqk Watch this quick time lapse of Sea Wolf being returned to her home waters of ABYC in the Port of Port Elizabeth. . . .

This very calm seal popped into the Algoa Bay Yacht Club to say hello on Saturday evening 24 May 2014. Apologies about the light. She lay on the side of the slipway, chilling and listening to the music - as she appeared in distress, the Sailing Commodore phoned our local Bayworld who will check on her in the morning. According to Bayworld these seals are not used to people so do not run away or recognise two legged beasts as potentially threatening. Still - I am not going to get much closer in case she gets a little angry with all the attention. http://youtu.be/BgayeSJNBkw Shared . . .

GoPro time lapse from the 4th and final race sailed on Wild Thing (Russel Morgan) in ABYC Week 1 to 4 May 2014. The Algoa Bay Yacht Club's annual prestige regatta was sailed in Port Elizabeth, South Africa in very light conditions and produced a first in that not one race was sailed over the entire course. Four races were shortened and two abandoned as the fleet struggled in extremely light conditions - http://abyc.co.za/another-first-for-abyc/ In this recording you will see a bit of argy bargy towards the 12 second mark as Wild Thing starboards Orion (Kerry Bonnage) who starboards . . .
