Cape to St. Helena Race 2021

Cape to St Helena 2021
Following a meeting with the skippers of all the paid-up entries regarding the 26 December 2021 event, Charter flight costs and requirements were tabled. The sentiment from the floor was that the price was high and that it would be unlikely that we could make up the required numbers well before the event, as would be required to confirm the charter.

With this in mind, the sentiment was to postpone.
