Felix, a Bongers 39, owned and skippered by Andrew Mitchell. Felix (Vortex) came 1st in the 2017 Mossel Bay Offshore race in the Club Handicap Division 1. Sailing with Andrew will be his navigator Johann Brits, who in the 2014/15 Governor’s Cup to St Helena co-skippered and navigated a Tosca 36 Talulah : to 2nd place in the cruising class. On board with Andrew will also be other veteran sailors that took part in the Mossel Bay race and the Governor’s Cup. The Bongers 39 is imminently suited for fast downwind sailing and with good strong winds will be a good contender for a place in the race.
