Redhouse Interclub & Gypsey Africa Regatta

From : March 2017

The Redhouse Interclub Regatta, along with the River Championships and the Gypsy Africa Regatta took place on the river in the Village over the weekend 21 and 22 January. With a combined total of 32 taking part, it was a busy, cheerful weekend and was great to welcome friends from Knysna and the Algoa Bay Yacht Clubs.

The weather for the regatta was sunny and warm with a steady, brisk south easterly blowing. It doesn’t get better than this. With 32 yachts on a narrow river, and a brisk wind we were expecting a certain amount of excitement. But there were no major collisions, although there were a few good swims and the odd bit of maintenance was needed here and there. F
