Cape 2 Rio Spectator Boats

The Cape to Rio Yacht Race has a great history, the first event leaving Cape Town in 1971. It attracted huge international interest, and this fascination has continued and grown with each sailing of the iconic event: fifteen races to date. The 2020 Cape to Rio is set to add yet another chapter to this sailing epic, and will be departing Table Bay in two classes; the Cruising Class or ‘slower’ boats sailing on the Saturday the 4th January and the racers, or Action Start, on Saturday the 11th January.
