Creeping up the West Coast of Southern Africa, Ongemak will hug the coast all the way to Namibia. By the time we reach Luderitz, we trust the she will confidently puff her chest in anticipation of the filling of the trade winds on route to St Helena.
The preparation? Besides the 5 years spent building her, captains Oloff & Muir are adding the last few essentials for smooth sailing.
Others have either quite their jobs or taken a sabbatical.
Starting 1 February, 2018, the crew will start prepping for the journey. This means all equipmen
t and food required for the few weeks it will take to get to Namibia.
