We are having a good sail north along the African west coast. We are heading for Namibia. We should be there on Thursday, Jan 17.  It is supposed to be quite a picturesque town with German influence in the architecture.  There is also an abandoned diamond mining town in the area that is a tourist attraction that we would like to visit.  Namibia also has a desert area that should be interesting to experience.  It has been quite cold on night watches, I have my long underwear on as well as 4 layers on the top. It should warm up as we get further north, the South Atlantic water is cold.
