  • PARKING - 
    • on arrival you can drive down to the beach where there will be place to offload your trailer and boat - your car then needs to immediately be moved away from this area as it is a dedicated BOAT YARD and we have limited space. You will be able to park nearby.
  • There is 24hr security so boats and trailers can stand securely after each days racing. It will be best to lock gear and sails in trailer boxes and NOT leave them on your tramp.
  • There will be help to move boats up and down the beach between races.
    • for washing boats - we will try to have buckets and sponges available should it be necessary for washing but no hosed water is allowed due to the drought.


    • HOBIE CAPE and Hobie Cat SA will have a few spares available and power will be supplied should you need to do any work on your boats.If there is something critical that is needed for your boat please reach info@hobiecape.co.za or colin@hobiecape.co.za or jaco@hobiecape.co.za urgently to ensure that it is available to you at the event.


  • PICTURES - Oldies, goodies, funnies —— any old Hobie images or photos please - we would love to share them on Sunday night. Please email them to me. Thanks to those who have already done so.


    • we are hoping to be a plastic free event as far as possible and ask that you please bring your own reusable water bottles along with you. We will have large drums of drinking water available for you to refill your bottles. We will also have very nice Club Mykonos branded reusable drinking bottles for sale at the race village, should you forgot or prefer to buy one. They will be in the region of R100. We encourage you not to take plastic water bottles out on the boats.
  • energy drinks are available to everyone through our wonderful sponsor 7 Stars - in cans.
  • We are hoping to supply basic ‘tuck shop’ in the race village - in the form of Bar Ones and fruit - for you to take on the boats as well.


Marc’s Beach Bar, White Sands Restaurant as well as Boesmanland will ALL SERVE BREAKFAST for you - I will confirm opening times in the mornings. 

Marc’s Bar has put together a quick and easy menu for lunches so as to not have a long wait when you do come in for a lunch break - please ensure you have your cash handy for this and possibly let them know at the start of the day what you will be wanting and I can co-ordinate the timing for you.

All 3 restaurants serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks and are all coming on board to help, be part of the event and offer specials.


  • lastly PLEASE make sure you are all SAS members (contact SAS in your region to confirm and bring the confirmation with you)
  • & Hobie Class members - contact your Hobie representative to confirm and bring this with you
    • this is a South African National event so we have to comply with this regulation. Anyone not a member of both WILL NOT receive a position in the event.


Travel safely, contact me if there is anything I can do to help you - SEE YOU THEN

and in the mean time I look forward to please receiving replies to the above ASAP.
