Rounding the cape

We will round the cape and begin heading North up the West coast of Africa today around noon.  At the moment I'm buried under a ton and a half of problems with work, but if I can crawl out from under them for a few minutes, I'll go up on deck and look for the Da Gamma Cross, one of the two monuments erected by the Portuguese to commemorate the explorer, Vasco Da Gamma.  We'll also keep an eye out for the Flying Dutchman, who is supposed to be dammed to ply these waters for all eternity...

From here, it should be a 5-6 day steam to Luanda, Angola.
