OFFSHORE WEEKLY UPDATE

The 55th Cape Naturalist and Return Race
A race that would decide the Siska Trophy winners. The week coming up to the race has a very changeable weather system. The briefing was well attended on Thursday 19 April for a start at 1755 on Friday.  For a variety of reasons, only 5 of the initial 12 registered boats started the race.  As the race progressed, there were further retirements, with Indian being the only team to finish.  Congratulations to Craig and his team. Well sailed.

Results are here

As always to our volunteers: a heartfelt thank you from our community, they start us, finish us and listen in between with a multitude of other activities before and after the race has even started!
