Is it Sunday, 12th May, and our precious barge, OCTO, leaves Durban harbour on this rust bucket called Red Cedar, bound for Rotterdam. We will arrive in Rotterdam on 2nd June to receive her off the ship and then will begin our great adventure.
It is over a year since OCTO was conceived and designed on a paper serviette by Gerald and Milton while having a liquid lunch at Groote Post vineyards. After a year of building, full of interesting events, she is on her way.
Travel well, OCTO, see you in Holland.
