In our carpentry workshop a little way down the beach from Reception, a team of carpenters working under Jurie’s guidance have built a wooden yacht, from scratch! It was finished in mid-February and a yacht rigger flew up from Durban to rig it – and it made its inaugural sail to Mumbo a week later. We have called it Miss Java, after Jurie’s daughter and it is a beautiful, graceful, white craft – simple to sail and with space to sleep in the two berths in the twin prows. Sunset cruises anyone?
