On 21 February 2020 we will be starting the 30th edition of the Mykonos Offshore race. This race has been a favourite of many South African sailors for many years. When the south-easter plays ball, the run up the coast to Saldanha is fantastic fun. However the bay race on the Saturday is the jewel in the crown for this regatta. Tina Plattner has labelled it as one of her two most favourite races anywhere in the world and she will be taking part on her TP52, Phoenix.
The Notice of Race has been published and entries are open. Make sure to get your entry in quickly as moorings at Club Mykonos are on a first-come, first-served basis and the race is sure to have a massive entry.
Club Mykonos are once more our major sponsor and they have kept accommodation prices at the same level as last year. The restaurants at Club Mykonos have been upgraded and are much more upmarket with a Cape Town Fish Market and Brauhaus, who will be offering specials throughout the regatta. The very popular Louise Day will get everyone on their feet and dancing on Saturday night after prize-giving.
Let us know how many Mykonos races you have taken part in over the last 30 years? Is there anyone who has sailed in all of them?
