Mossel Bay Race Success!

Sailing team Yachtport SA has won the latest edition of the Mossel Bay Race!

Sailing in treacherous conditions the South African Navy sponsored vessel has won the event on corrected time. 

The 210 nautical mile race took place from Simons Town to Mossel Bay, rounding the Southernmost tip of Africa, contending with the volatile mixing of the opposing Benguela and Agulhas currents.

Skipper Andre Besta and his crew had to deal with ferocious weather conditions. Wind gusts reported up to 49 Knots from the West, creating 5 meter high swells at times. Racing in the harshest of conditions. 

Unfortunately the race victory will never ease the pain of the tragedy experienced during the race to a fellow race competitor. Our utmost condolences for the family and friends.
