The ARC Around the World 2012 fleet arrives in Hout Bay

Well some of them, said to be 30 yachts this year when the 2010 fleet was just 19? The HBYC will be very happy to welcome the ARC Around The World fleet once more.

I heard this visitor from Japan hail on VHF channel 16, he called  the harbour and asked for permission to enter, Barry off  Drumbeat called him and suggested he come into the marina, pick up a space and find the club marina manager.

Note: Hout Bay has no active harbour master!

Also here is a 40ft Hallberg Rassey with an Island Packet 48.5 on the hard at the HBBY in the far left hand corner of this picture.
