2nd International Invitational Regatta
Another thrilling event!
The Cape 31’s were on display this weekend in the 2nd Cape 31 International Invitational. Three visiting teams from the Royal Ocean Racing Club, the Royal Thames Yacht Club and Royal Perth Yacht Club joined the local teams on the race course.

Hull number 8, called MB, and owned by Bjorn Geiger was launched two weeks ago. Certainly great to see this boat sailing!
With the second international invitational regatta complete, interest is growing. Boats 9 through 12 will be launched from May onward.
Flame continues to be available for charter for local regattas.

The wind on the nose didn’t deter the Cape 31’s from heading up the West Coast for the annual Mykonos Offshore regatta.
Run by Royal Cape Yacht Club, “Mykonos” is the biggest offshore race in Africa in numbers. Close on 60 boats sailed from Cape Town to Club Mykonos on the West Coast, arriving well into the early hours of Saturday morning.

1st International Invitational Regatta
What an exciting event!
The seven teams participating in the regatta had near perfect conditions. The Race Officers, led by Stuart Childerley, set a variety of courses including upwind, down wind and reaching starts on day 1. Slightly longer windward/leeward courses and a short final coast race were set on day 2.

What better time to hold the inaugural Cape 31 Class Regatta than during the height of the Volvo Ocean Race Cape Town stopover?
The Volvo fleet has now left town but in their wake is left the excitement of our new One-Design class.
The regatta really showcased what this fast-growing fleet of Mark Mills-designed sportboats is all about.
