We are John and Kat from Australia, members of the PCA and we are building a 42' Pahi due to launch in about a year. We will be in Cape Town on 4/5 February and Durban on 7th February. If you are going to be in the area and would be happy to meet with us to discuss Wharram building and owning, we would enjoy it very much. Please let us know as soon as possible.

Dear Lawrence

we are sailing from New York to Sydney on the Queen Mary 2 and are now looking at hiring a car in durban at 8am when we dock and driving up to Richards Bay for the day.  we have to be back on the QM by 5pm but that still leaves a few hours at the Zululand Yacht Club with you and any other wharramers who are willing to meet us :)  we'll contact you closer to the date but are really looking forward to swapping Pahi building stories and seeing where you are up to with yours.  we'll bring photos of ours.  cheers J&K

Hi Lawrence,

Given your comments re the drive time & our departure restrictions, we will now not drive up north, but take up Chris Bretters offer to see his boat which is only 20km from Durban.

Many thanks for the info, please keep in touch.

Hope you will find your way off RB, and please say hello from us to your nice family.
