We made it !!!
After 1,642 miles and 14 days and 23 hours sailing from Mauritius, we have arrived safely in Durban, South Africa.
We obtained the important piece of paper that says the Department of Agriculture have agreed the boys can be imported within 4 hours of arrival so all the hassle we incurred in Darwin trying to get a Permit organised has paid off.... it was lovely to see them running around on the pontoon - their first time on land for over 2 months.
Having been travelling at Sea for 62 of the last 68 days (6 in Mauritius), it is great to be able to relax and, hopefully, get a decent night's sleep.... We are also very cheap dates as a couple of beers are sufficient to make us quite happy after so long on the wagon !!
