ZS1AFS will be sailing from England to South Africa

Yesterday I made a QSO on the 15m band with Tom (ZS1AFS) from Milnerton. Milnerton is a suburb of Cape Town in South Africa situated on the Atlantic Ocean 11 kilometres to the north of Cape Town city's centre.
Looking at Tom's entry I found out that he will be sailing from England to South Africa in 2010-11. He will be saling as G0CAJ/MM and will welcome contacts.
Tom Morgan is the author of a number of books on sailing and related topics, which include South African Nautical Almanac 2010/2011, Boat Trekkers Guide (co-author), How to Pass the Marine Radio Exam, 2nd Ed., Cruising Guides & Pilot Books (South Atlantic Circuit, Havens and Anchorages). More information can be found at
Milnerton's beach is well known for its views of Table Mountain and is a popular spot for walkers and surfers. The wave size varies from small to large and tends to barrel, with the best waves occurring when there is a south-easter blowing. The water is generally cold, the result of the Benguela current that flows along Africa's western shore.
