Tension and excitement has the sailing fraternity on tenterhooks this week, with all eyes focussed on the prestigious 2016 Lipton Cup Challenge.

After two days racing in Table Bay, Cape Town – the Club Marine-sponsored Orion B2G2 racing yacht  (belonging to Royal Natal Yacht Club) is currently in 2nd place.

Skippered by Ricky Robinson, the six-man team is more determined than ever to bring the cup home to Durban. The last time RNYC won the Lipton Cup was in 2013 and last year the team came 2nd to Royal Cape Yacht Club.

This exciting event finishes on Friday.
