high standard

line up at the buffet table

In the background, behind the yacht masts, several ocean-going vessels
lie at berth. Who knows what might be possible for a future DxPedition...?

The team poses for one last group photo

Team members sign the pennant

Erling / LA6VM chats with SARL President, Nico / ZS6QL,
who flew down specially from Gauteng to attend the function.

Every good seafaring story ends with an anchor!
This large one (scrounged by ZS1ZD from a kindly passing yachtsman)
will soon embellish the QTH of Paul / ZS1S
in some decorative capacity...
