Robben Island by boat

Tony provided support to some swimmers who participated in the Freedom Swim from Robben Island across Table Bay to Big Bay, on 3 May. We launched at Oceana Power Boat Club, and motored across to Robben Island when the mist cleared a bit, enjoying the excellent power to weight ratio that the boat now has thanks to the 60hp Mercury four strokes that Tony fitted recently.


I filmed this while we were whizzing past Robben Island (spot the lighthouse?) to Murray’s Bay Harbour, where the swim started.
