Skipper/person-in-charge will be Roux Gerber, navigator/entertainer will be Wynand Grové, joined by our chef and deck-hand José da Silva and myself (Hubert Saayman), making all of our dreams a reality.”The Indulgence crew have decided to sail for a purpose and are raising funds for the National Sea Rescue Institute Station 22 Vaal Dam.To read more about Indulgence, her crew and to follow her progress you can follow their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/IndulgenceCape2Rio/To support the fundraising efforts of Indulgence and her crew click here https://www.backabuddy.co.za/indulgence-cape-to-rio-nsriIndulgence will set sail on 04 January 2020.
