The yacht is a Lavranos L26, now about thirty years old as a design but suitable for One Design racing and there are lots of them. The team will have to sail around via Cape Point, or will they use the boats trailer?

An update on the team since I posted the blog on the HBYC team.
HBYC Youth Sailing team came 3rd overall, 3rd in the L26 class, and first of the JML boats in the recent PicknPay Youth Regatta at RCYC. This is an outstanding first result for this new team! All credit to Sam and the others involved in supporting them. We seem to have some great momentum for Lipton next month. Please remember to support them generously at the Lipton Auction on Friday 27 July!
Prize giving at the RCYC, soon to be a regular event for the HBYC youth team.
Thanks to Audi Center Cape Town for the sponsership and thanks to Trevor Wilkins for these two pictures.
