LTC Phoenix Admirals Regatta 2020

The 2020 LTC Phoenix Admirals regatta will be sailed in the picturesque waters of Hout Bay from 20 – 22 March 2020.

Not only is the Admirals Regatta the most versatile regatta that Cape Town has to offer – it is also the only offshore dinghy regatta on the Cape Town dinghy sailing calendar.

Admirals regatta offers three different bridges and race officers – dinghies and small catamarans, small inshore keelboats, and offshore keelboats.

Offshore, the regatta offers an ORC racing class and a medium distance ORC and PHRF sailing class.

Here’s why YOU should enter:
• Unbelievable entry fees: Keelboats – R300 per keelboat including the skipper and R100 for every additional crew member. Dinghies and small catamarans – R100 per dinghy or small catamaran and skipper, and R50 per crew member
• Complimentary meal on Friday night for all competitors
• Snacks on Sunday at prize giving
• A free craft beer and a shooter for every sailor after the John Coles Trophy race on Saturday
• It is the only offshore dinghy event in the 2020 Cape Town sailing calendar
• Arguably the most picturesque racing in the country
• A dedicated bridge for each class.
• Free mooring for keelboats in the HBYC Marina – enter early for the best berths!
• Easy launching for dinghies at the revamped slip in the harbour in front of HBYC, and secure dinghy parking behind lock gates with security guards
• Legendary Hout Bay Yacht Club hospitality!
• Fantastic prizes!

This year, the LTC Phoenix Admirals Regatta again promises to be three days of fantastic sailing for the following classes:
• Keelboats – ORC offshore racing class
• Keelboats – PHRF and ORC medium distance sailing class
• Small keelboats – inshore PHRF racing class
• Senior dinghy classes (single or double handed)
• Senior small catamaran classes (single or double handed)
Offshore keelboats, dinghies and inshore keelboats each have their own bridge.
