2022 Golden Globe Race Competitor to visit GBYC 31 March 2022

Gordon’s Bay Yacht club is having a fundraising event for Kirsten Neuschäfer on the 31st of March 2022. This inspiring lady is going to attempt to be the first woman competitor in the history to complete the Golden Globe race. The race is known as one of the toughest yacht races in the world and is an around-the-world race based on the original 1968 Sunday times golden globe race. Competitors are only allowed to use boats and equipment that was around during 1968, so no modern GPS technology.

Please come and join us for an interesting evening. Kirsten will share more on her preparations for the trip and tell us more about the race. A meal will be served after her presentation and a special bottle of wine will be on auction. Tickets will be on sale at the club office. In the spirit of fundraising, you can buy a ticket for any amount with all the proceeds going to Kirsten’s journey. ( a reserve price of R100 will be applicable).  This event will be open to both members and Non-members, so do not delay in booking your ticket.
