* Jumping castle for the little ones
* “vantage” supporters area @ UCT Yacht Club with fully serviced bar, tea, coffee and food
* Saturday and Sunday breakfast and lunch available
* The Southern Charter Advantage Buoy: whilst this is going to be a highly competitive fun regatta, we want to have as many boats on the water as possible racing, wasting as little time as possible between races, encouraging non-competitive sailors to learn from competitive sailors, and to facilitate closer racing an Advantage Buoy will be used in the classes that choose to
* Mentorship by some of SA’s best sailors for the more novice sailors
* Participation by top SA sailors
And it gets better!

Dinghy & Cat Regatta

Zeekoei Vlei YC are hosting THE regatta of Western Cape Sailing in the new sailing season, and the opening one, too – The Southern Charter Spring Open on 27 & 28 September, and have already ordered beautiful sunny weather and perfect sailing winds. We are already hard at work organising the only truly open regatta and also the only hometown interclub regatta for Capetown sailors.

The Southern Charter Spring Open promises to be BIG – and be a fantastic combination of great, competitive sailing and great fun. We have Doug Alison as our Race Officer and are expecting a record fleet. After sailing on the Saturday there is fantastic food and entertainmemt (including us watching the Boks thrash the Aussies on the rugby field) and free camping or sleeping downstairs at the club. We trust you have already put the dates in your diary..

We have a great evening at the club this past Wednesday where sailors from the different classes put forward so many great ideas on the sailing for the weekend. Thanks to all those who attended and gave their input.
The NOR, Entry Form and Poster are going out later today – so watch your inboxes and enter online!
