This famous vessel, a Lavranos 36 was recently donated to Royal Cape Sailing Academy by fellow club member Joe Van der Westhuizen. She is steeped in history and we are so proud to be bringing her back to her glory and joining the sailing circuit in Table Bay.The goal is to provide the Academy students the opportunity to sail longer distances offshore, build their miles for the skippers tickets and offer an offshore racing program. The Yacht has undergone a major refit including a new engine given to the Academy at cost. So far the project has been funded from kind donations from various members and companies, ALL of who will be deservedly recognized at her launch date
We still need to complete this special project and will require additional funds to get the vessel to a seaworthy condition. Neil Gregory and I have each donated R 5000 to this worthy cause and I encourage fellow members to consider a donation. Whatever amount suits.
Please contact Toni Mainprize on who will give details.
