Fin de la Saison
18th – 19th March
The Fin de la Saison Regatta is Royal Cape’s ultimate summer season-ender, featuring Fun Sailing! Taking place 18-19 March, and incorporating race date 2 of the Club Summer Series, racing will be based on fresh formats and offer an alternative to conventional windward leeward short course racing. Some ideas for races include, but are not restricted to:
In the Spirit of the Club Summer Series, this is a short dash to warm up. The Start and handling are key.
The Lighthouse Family
A Bay Race visiting some or all of the lighthouses in Table Bay (Mouille Point; Robben Island; Milnerton) *The Dassen Duster* A 70 mile race to Dassen and back, with the option to shorten course and finish at Dassen and return under non racing conditions.
The Bokpunt Blaster
A 44 mile race to Bokpunt and back, with the option to shorten course and finish at Bokpunt and return under non racing conditions.
The Vulcan Rocker
A 26 mile race to Vulcan Rock and back in a westerly or southwesterly breeze.
Rather than stay ashore and wait, this is a no wind scenario raft up at Granger Bay or Clifton with on water entertainment. Anyone of the other races could follow on if weather permits.
In all cases, suitably shorter courses may be set for smaller and slower (or all) yachts, with the emphasis on fun sailing.
There will be a cocktail party for all on Saturday night.
