Royal Cape Yacht Club in conjunction with St Helena Tourism are proud to confirm that the next Cape to St Helena Race is scheduled to start on the 26 December 2020.

The Cape to St Helena Race is a 1700Nautical Mile (3060km) race which has a history spanning back 24 years

Based on various discussions and sentiments with various yacht owners, it is envisaged that this event will have a record number of entries and possibly records will tumble.

The race attracts Corinthian entries, cruising entries and the well-established racers.

Talks have commenced with the shippers with the intention of offering shipping to a limited number of entries. The allocation of this will likely be based on the vessel size and the entry number (early entries get preference, etc.)

We are also very excited to confirm that our airline partner for this event, Airlink, will be having a direct weekly flight between Cape Town and St Helena as well as their weekly Johannesburg to St Helena option giving the option to choose from two different flights. Discussions are currently underway with the airline for flights for entries and their supporters.

There will be presentations made by St Helena Tourism at a later stage regarding the island, accommodation and other options ashore.

The race documents are due to be issued shortly.
