In 1975 a friend and i decided to go on a working holiday to Cape Town and sailed on the Oranje on its very last voyage. We shared a cabin with an Australian i think his name was Renton Wright? who was getting married in Cape Town. The weather through the bay was rough, and the weather was extremely rough three days out from Cape Town. Most passengers suffered severe sea sickness, and only a few turned up for dinner on the last night. One of the South African Cricketers was also travelling on the ship, after playing in the Lancashire league during the 75 summer. I think his name was Peter Swart who came in very handy when we played the officers at deck Cricket.
