Southern Charter Grand Slam Event 1 (ZVYC) Postponed to 12/ 13 October 2013

In the light of the exceptional weather forecast for the weekend of 14/ 15 September the organisers and sponsors have decided to take the unprecedented move of postponing this regatta until the weekend of 12/13 October 2013.  It appears that the forecasted wind conditions will allow only a very small (if any) window for sailing during the weekend.

Although we understand that this is not ideal for everybody we believe this is the right course of action in the light of what this series is aiming to achieve – Increase sailing participation in the Western Cape though providing professional run regattas that are remembered for the fun had by competitors and supporters alike.  

We look forward seeing you at the future Southern Charter Grand Slam Series events:
Zeekoevlei Yacht Club (ZVYC): Grand Slam 1 – 12/ 13 October 2013
Theewater Sports Club (TSC): Grand Slam 2 – 7/8 December 2013
Hermanus Yacht Club (HYC): Grand Slam 3 – 8/9 February 2014
False Bay Yacht Club (FBYC): Western Province Championships – 18- 21 April 2014
