Omatako will become famous soon enough
Many years ago we came across a guy who sailed from Indonesia to South Africa on a 24 foot sailboat using a school atlas for navigation. When he landed he knew he was in Africa but had no idea which city. He simply found a loom on the horizon one night and sailed to it, finding Durban.

So it can and has been done.
