The Island race took place on the 20 January 2019 sailed from the port of Port Elizabeth. In all 9 yachts competed the 22 nm course around the Island of St Croix and the Bell buoy. Wind was a light NE at the start but quickly built to a 20 kt SE around lunch time. The sailing conditions were magnificent and all yacht’s completed the course in 3h30 to 4:h20 minutes.
