Cargo ship in Table Bay

“The bay, although famous for centuries as a haven for ships, is actually a rather poor natural harbour and is badly exposed to gales from both the SE and NW. Many sailing ships seeking refuge in the bay during the 17th and 18th centuries were driven ashore by storms.” (Source: Wikipedia)

To this day, ships are sometimes driven ashore by the fierce winds that swirl around the Bay.
