Not just rare: Storm on the southern tip of Africa in the South Atlantic. White, about beating high waves as far as the eye can see. (00011352)

Description: Southern tip of Africa

Violent storm in the South Atlantic

The southern tip of Africa is known for sudden storms in hurricane force with high waves. During my many stays here, I have encountered storms with wave heights of up to eight meters. Sometimes I had to wait 10 days until the storm subsided and a trip was possible. The waters around Cape Agulhas are rich in fish. Because of the inhospitable coastline with many reefs, they are considered dangerous for shipping. Since the middle of the 17th century - in the "Graveyard of Ships" - 140 sunken ships are said to have been moored here alone.
