Cape2Rio Race 2023
The Cape2Rio is a world-class offshore sailing race like no other.
Steeped in tradition, it is without question the southern hemisphere’s
premium sailing event, attracting huge international attention since its
inception in 1971.
Join us on this epic adventure as we dash across the blue waters of the
South Atlantic from Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro.
The race starts on January 2, 2023, but you’ll want to arrive early in
Cape Town – the iconic port city on the southwest coast of South Africa.
Make your trip truly memorable by allowing for time to stroll beautiful
white sand beaches and explore the many historic landmarks. With
majestic Table Mountain as its backdrop, take in the old-world
charm of the waterfront where you’ll be spoiled for choice with
international and local cuisine eateries.
Your adventure includes a four-day training session before the start of
the race. Whether you are a seasoned sailor or a novice, there is a
sense of excitement and pre-race anticipation as we bring everyone up
to speed with our high levels of safety awareness and offshore crew
management systems. Together we will discuss tips and strategies to
push the boat fast.
Every three years this prestigious race attracts crews from all over the world. At 3300 nautical miles, it’s the longest
continent-to-continent yacht race in the southern hemisphere,
demanding tactical seamanship and weather-savvy skill.
After leaving Table Bay, it’s a non-stop trek across the South Atlantic to
Rio de Janeiro – the chosen destination as it allows for a pleasing down-
wind race. However, the skippers are challenged with a critical
decision: do they follow the stronger trade winds or gamble on the
more direct route to South America with the possibility of lighter winds?
Make no mistake, for approximately three weeks we’ll be racing our
hearts out and having the time of our lives!
It’s an incredible moment as Rio comes into view and you realize the
race is ending but the memories will last a lifetime. Your journey has
brought you to the shimmering capital city of Brazil, known as the
Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvellous City), a title that does not disappoint.
Relive the thrill of the race as you take in the golden beaches, lush
mountains, and samba-fueled nightlife.
If the Cape2Rio Race is on your ‘bucket list’, do it in style with a world
class skipper, a pedigree race boat and full safety & deck operations
training – all at a great price.
