Who is “Vanhunks”?

Our name was inspired by an African legend. The legend goes that in the 18th century Dutch pirate Van Hunks retired to the Cape of Good Hope. One day he came across a stranger dressed in a black cloak with a large hat pulled down over most of his face. It was this meeting that changed Cape Town forever. Want to know more?
