With Island Wanderer and Amazing Grace arrived Friday in Richards Bay all yachts are now safely berthed at Zululand Yacht Club.
The first World ARC vessel to arrive was Ko Tangaroa, followed by Sky and Chanto; all yachts were met by Zululand Sailing Commodore Mike and World ARC Rally Control to pilot them to their berth and welcome them to South Africa
The rest of the fleet arrived in time to enjoy their first South African braai and the Welcome Drinks evening at the Wet Deck bar where all participants sang the World ARC Rally song composed by Petra Richard and Scott from Celtic Star
The programme will continue with the tour to Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve tomorrow, followed by an additional Braai and a delicious wine tasting evening on Tuesday.
The week of festivities culminates on Wednesday with a cruising to Cape Town briefing and traditional Zulu dancing and dinner.
Crews have various agendas planned for their free cruising time to Cape Town. What everyone will be watching closely is the weather and planning their passage with the famed Agulas current! Zululand Yacht Club once again has provided a great first impression of South Africa, the remainder of the country is sure to impress and provide lifetime memories!
Thanks to Zululand Yacht Club for the great support
