Rotary Scout – who wants to sail back from Rio?

There is a place available on Rotary Scout for the return trip to Cape Town for anyone interested as 3 of the crew will be flying back from Rio, as originally intended, but only 2 will now be flying to Rio to join the boat. The departure from Rio will be on about the 3-4th of February and will be going via Il Grande, an island about half a day’s sailing from Rio where a night or two will be spent taking it easy and living the island life. The journey back will take about 3-4 weeks in all and the cost will be the same as what everyone else originally paid, i.e. R5000 which includes all meals but excludes the flight to Rio which is about R6000. Anyone interested should please send an e-mail to Mark Jennings at with their credentials, such which scout group they are associated with as well as sailing experience etc. The person will also need to have a valid passport and get a yellow fever vaccination.
