Mossel Bay Race Success!

Sailing team Yachtport SA has won the latest edition of the Mossel Bay Race!

Sailing in treacherous conditions the South African Navy sponsored vessel has won the event on corrected time. 

The 210 nautical mile race took place from Simons Town to Mossel Bay, rounding the Southernmost tip of Africa, contending with the volatile mixing of the opposing Benguela and Agulhas currents.

Skipper Andre Besta and his crew had to deal with ferocious weather conditions. Wind gusts reported up to 49 Knots from the West, creating 5 meter high swells at times. Racing in the harshest of conditions. 

Unfortunately the race victory will never ease the pain of the tragedy experienced during the race to a fellow race competitor. Our utmost condolences for the family and friends.

Pegasus Revitalised

20m Motor Yacht Pegasus has recently been revitalised and given a new lease on life at Yachtport SA.

This steel hulled vessel underwent full bottom works, survey, fitment of new saloon windows and doors as well as a complete respray of the hull and superstructure. Works were conducted in record time while comfortably housed in Yachtport's maintenance shed in Saldanha Bay.

We are most pleased to have restored this vessel after a long period of neglect and wish her well with her new owners.
