No wonder Port Elizabeth is gaining a great reputation as a watersport capital. We recently showed you the swimming phase of the Ironman contest. This weekend PE was host to another major event. The GIZA Challenge is the Algoa Bay Yacht Club's premiere annual regatta attracting a strong fleet of local yachts as well as entries from around South Africa. We are very grateful to Alan Straton, Commadore of ABYC, for sharing some of the photos they had taken during the event, by photographer Leon Hugo.
This is such a cool one because you get an unusual aerial view of our beachfront.
And this is Warrior, - owned by Phil Gutsche, a Simonis 60 foot racing yacht which has previously taken part in the Cape to Rio. (We have been lucky enough to go for a sunset cruise out past Cape Recife lighthouse on Warrior, she is an amazing vessel!)
We'll show more tomorrow..... thanks Alan!
