The 29th edition of this great event. Sadly the Wind Gods weren’t our friend on Friday with the fleet departing Cape Town in a very light Southerly which all but died on them as they approached Dassen Island. With at least 80% of the fleet retiring from Race 1, deciding to give Race 2 a chance when then got to Dassen however that too seemed to be what one can only call frustrating sailing. Well done to the 9 entries who managed to complete the entire race. Congratulations to team Nitro – Mike Hayton and David Rae who claimed all 3 major titles this weekend, Line Honours, Winners of the Bay Race (Race 4) as well as overall winners of this years event.
A fantastic turn out from the “cruising racing fleet” again this year – here’s to many more joining next year.
