Well done Gerrie and Asenathi “RCYC Team to defend Lipton Challenge Cup 2019
This year we received two expressions of interest to represent RCYC at Lipton Challenge Cup being sailed during August for the first time in Cape 31s.
May was the month chosen to host the sail-off, with the event being hosted over 2 consecutive Saturdays, with 7 races to count. (no discards – as it is in Lipton)
Team Seascape powered by YANMAR – skippered by Gerry Hegie/ Asenathi Jim and Team Magic skippered by Malcolm Hall/ Roger Hudson. Both teams were incredibly focused, well prepared and bought a professional element to the sail-off ].
Congratulations to Gerry Hegie / Asenathi Jim and the team on Seascape power by YANMAR for winning the sail-off.
Team Seascape powered by YANMAR will be known as this years defenders for the Lipton Challenge Cup” Royal Cape Yacht Club
