Will later do the US Visa

At the last minute, we opted out of doing the USA visa applications here in Recife, Brazil. The Consulate website states that there is a high probability that visa applications could be declined if done in another country other than your home country - as there might be difficulties in their verification pocesses. In addition, we finally managed to find out what supporting documents are required by the Consulate and unfortunately, we do not have all of these with us on the yacht. Once a visa application is declined, one may only apply for another visa after some time has elapsed. So instead of risking failure to obtain the visa, we opted to apply for the visa when we visit South Africa in a couple of months from now. In the meantime, we are doing some sight seeing in Recife as well as attending to some minor work on Revelations.

I believe Wiets has booked a session on the Hobie so you can show him how to balance Revelations on one hull

Yes, it can be quite a frightening experience to have a hull lift out the water. It still takes quite a lot to actually capsize. The biggest danger in my opinion is to have too much sail up going downwind in a big see. When hitting the back of the swell in front of you and the nose digs in, the boat stops . Unless you free the spinnaker, the power increases dramatically and a pitch pole could happen. Anyone have anything else to add? Cheers, Brent
