The 2019 Lipton Challenge Cup got off to a cold and wet start in a typical Cape winter’s Northerly wind. After racing was cancelled yesterday due to a winter storm, the teams were itching to go today. Boats were tuned, sailors were prepped and the race committee, under the expertise of SRO Doug Allison, were prepared to pack in the required races. The racing started just after the allotted time of 11am. The deep talent pool allowed for exciting racing, with the sailors not giving an inch away.
