The Phantom Ship
3 November 2021
The clouds here are always amazing, providing a show no matter what they do – summer or winter. The bay sometimes stretches out forever, with the line between sea and sky completely blurred. When this happens, there is sometimes also a mist in the air that creates a lot of atmosphere. Sometimes this mist will clear intermittently, providing patches of sudden clarity. It was during one of these clear spells that this three master, the biggest sailing yacht in the world, seemed to emerge like a phantom ship. About a minute later the mist hid it again.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there.
