Circumnavigation completed


SuAn is finally crossing her track after almost 15 years and more than 80,000 nautical miles at the Caribbean island St. Lucia. The two of us have finally completed our circumnavigation and celebrate it with Caribbean Rum Punch similar like when we arrived in St. Lucia in December 2009 with the ARC Rally.

Stranded in Mayotte

In our initial attempt to sail from Mayotte to South Africa, we had covered only 80 nautical miles when our reliable engine, Yanmar San, suddenly failed us. Despite attempting all the usual revival measures, including changing filters and checking all systems, we couldn't resolve the issue. With heavy hearts, we turned back and sailed to return to Mayotte.

Upon a thorough investigation, we discovered that the root cause of our problem is a malfunctioning fuel injection pump. Fixing this issue is not a simple task and will require some time. SuAn is moored at a buoy in front of the Dzaoudzi Yacht Club, and we must acknowledge that, for now, we find ourselves stranded.

Next destination: South Africa

We have pondered for a long time about which route to take on our way back to Europe: the shorter path through the Red Sea or the longer route around the Cape of Good Hope, involving three additional ocean crossings. Ultimately, we have opted for the longer journey via South Africa. Along the way, while crossing the Indian Ocean to South Africa, we will visit the islands of Cocos Keeling, Mauritius, and Réunion.

The reasons for our decision lie, firstly, in the uncertain security situation in the Red Sea and along that route. Secondly, South Africa is, of course, a tourist destination that we much prefer over the often overcrowded tourist spots in the Mediterranean.
