YachtPort to Club Mykonos
All the work on Revelations has been done and it's almost time to go back to Houtbay. We are waiting for calmer seas and weather so we need to hang out somewhere in Langebaan until then. Besides anchoring, there are a couple of places one can moor in Langebaan - YachtPort, Club Mykonos, Saldanha Yacht Club and Langebaan Yacht Club. We have never been to Langebaan Yacht Club and we will need a dinghy to get to shore. This was not an option as our inflatable dinghy overstayed it welcome wand was thrown overboard. We are still busy building our new dinghy and therefor had no means to reach shore. We know Saldanha Yacht Club and have previously anchored there, but we also need a dinghy to reach shore.
This left keeping the yacht at YachtPort or moving it to Club Mykonos. Looking at the rates, facilities and services available from YachtPort, Saldanha and comparing it to Club Mykonos - there is a big difference. For mooring requirements, Yachtport offers very little in facilities, no conveniences, are miles away from anywhere, over the top prices in addition to dodgy pricing policies. Club Mykonos offered everything in YachtPort did but also many other conveniences and facilities. Club Mykonos is a fairly new marina, well maintained, customer friendly and no funny emotional policies. Finally, Club Mykonos beat the crap out of YachtPort overflated prices. So we left YachtPort this morning and secured a mooring in Club Mykonos.
... we hardly left YachtPort and we received another email from YachtPort demanding more money. Similar to some of those incredibly sour sweets, sugar coated on the outside but so very sour on the inside - one cannot help but sense this from the people at YachtPort.
