Good Morning,


The Royal Cape Yacht Club and Iate Club Rio de Janiero have agreed to stage a running for the iconic Cape to Rio Race in 2023, the race will commence on 2 January 2023 from Cape Town South Africa and will be a dash across the South Atlantic Ocean of approximately 3300 mile. This race is not unlike the prestigious Transpac Race, skirting a dominant high pressure system and enjoying warm water champagne sailing a few days out of Cape Town.


We would welcome the members of your esteemed club  to consider entering the race, we are available to field any enquiries you may have about the race and draw your attention to the logistic solution in the presentation. Services from other global regions can also be provided.


Attached is a brochure of our race presentation, a video link is also available to preview the history of the race which goes back to 1971.


Should you wish to receive regular updates and information as we progress the preparations for 2023 please let us know and we shall add you to our list of possible entries.
