Dream yacht sets sail
AFTER a fouryear long project of building their dream yacht, Blackie and Karin Swart finally launched Injabulo (meaning happiness) at the Zululand Yacht Club (ZYC) last Wednesday.
The 15m catamaran was brought in on a road transporter from Buhrmansdrift near Mahikeng to Richards Bay last month, and the launch attracted a crowd at the ZYC as many waited in anticipation for it to finally hit the water.
The yacht was built by North West advocate Swart, with the help of his wife Karin.
Watching a lifelong dream fulfilled as the yacht slid into the water for the first time, the couple plan to head for the Caribbean in the catamaran, which has six cabins and which sleeps 12 people.
