ROBBERG FINE FOODS CLASSIC BEACH REGATTA
The Robberg Fine Foods Classic Beach Regatta is all set for 14th-16th December. And this year promises to be another cracker.
As always, it takes place from Plettenberg Bay’s sheltered Hobie Beach and the sight of a fleet of beautiful, multi-coloured sails in the bay has become an iconic part of Plett Summer, one remembered by many visitors and residents as far back as their own childhoods.
Local business Robberg Fine Foods will sponsor the event again this year.
For sailors, this legendary regatta is one for the bucket list! Traditionally, sailors from all over South Africa take part in this fun regatta, amongst them a number of Hobie national and world champions! Get up close and personal and watch as the boats do a beach start, race “round the cans” (a set of buoys in the bay) or do a long-haul race from the mouth of the Keurbooms lagoon all the way across to the wreck off Solar Beach. While things may look calm from the beach, they’re anything but on the water as boats jockey for position on the start line and then race each other for line honours.
Hobie sailors are famously easy-going and friendly, and members of the public are welcome to come down to Hobie Beach and “meet the fleet” when the boats are on the beach. Who knows? You may enjoy it so much that we’ll see you out there next year!
Dates: 14-16 December 2019
Times: 09h00 to 16h00 daily
Venue: Hobie Beach
