COME BACK TO ST HELENA
The Royal Cape Yacht Club hasn’t sailed a comp to St Helena island in almost four years. Mainly because it’s so remote. It is 2000 km West of Namibia/Angola and 4000 km east of Rio de Janeiro, and could only be reached via the sea (no airports).

This made it practically unreachable for sailors’ families during the sailing season (which is also the festive and New Year season). It’s a shame because the sailing is great here.

THE AIRPORT THAT MADE IT POSSIBLE
But now, the tiny South Atlantic island of St Helena just got its first and only airport, with regular SA Airlink flights, prompting the Royal Cape Yacht Club to announce a new form of the old Governor’s Cup (former St Helena race from the 1960s). The new Cape to St Helena yacht race departs from Cape Town the day after Christmas and participants are expected to start arriving at St Helena on 5 January 2019. So it’ll be New Year’s celebrated out on the open ocean.

EXCITEMENT OVER THE NEW RACE
So far, plenty of boats have entered, and there’s a shipping company that will assist in returning yachts back to Cape Town after the race, so there’s a buzz of excitement over the new race on both the SA and St Helena side. Entries close on 30 November 2018.

To enquire about entering, contact the Royal Cape Yacht Club’s Hilary Ackermann at sailing@rcyc.co.za, or visit their website.

CAPE TO ST HELENA YACHT RACE
26 December 2018
Time limit: 15 days
Entry Fee: R1500 per yacht, R500 per crew member
