Heineken Cape to Rio Race update.

Inland sailor Mike Robinson is taming the South Atlantic in the 2011 Heineken Cape to Rio yacht race.


The 35ft Ciao Bella has made steady progress on its westerly course to Rio and now lies in third place on handicap behind Dale Kushner’s Xtra-Link and current leader City of Cape Town , skippered by Gerry Hegie.

Robinson, who has his entire family on board, normally does his sailing from the Boskop Dam in the North-West province and entered the race after numerous requests from his three teenage sons Ricky, Brennan and Ryan.

The Simonis 35 completed 210 nautical miles after yesterday’s 24 hour run. But it was Yachtport SA, skippered by Dave Herman, which had the best run (224,6nm), followed by City of Cape Town (219,7nm) and Xtra-Link (216,8nm).

The 54ft Prodigy, skippered by Durban yachtsman Chris Frost, still leads the race for line honours but could only manage 215,9nm, while the other maxi in the race, the 63ft Grand Filou II, clocked 205nm.

Prodigy is now 2,072nm away from the finish at the Rio Yacht club, City of Cape Town 2,144nm and Grand Filou 2,161nm.
