SV Sara B sailing around the world






SV Sara B


    The 'Sara B' is a Lello 34 sloop that was build near Johannesburg, South African and launched in Durban in 1979.

    The couple that built her sailed from Durban to Cape Town with help, and then headed for the Mediterranean by themselves. Both of them spend the whole time sea-sick, and after several days turned back to Cape Town, tied her to the dock, and put up a 'For Sale' sign.


    My ex-wfe and I bought her on 29 February 1984, and set off for the USA a year later after figuring out the basics of sailing.
