ROYAL CAPE YACHT CLUB

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

The Royal Cape Yacht club maintains the historic description of the City as the "Tavern of the Seas”. It has a deserved reputation for its Hospitality to visiting yachtsmen. Since I first called in with Suhaili in 1966 on my way from India to the UK, I have called in many times and the friendliness has not changed in 50 years.

Sir Robin Knox Johnston

Cape Town is increasingly being acknowledged as the events capital of Africa, and I would like to thank the Royal Cape Yacht Club for contributing to this status
