HE Governor Lisa commented:

“I was delighted to be able to host, at Plantation House, the crew of those who participated in the Cape to St Helena Yacht Race and who competed for the Governor’s Cup. I was also excited to see the winner – Indaba – cross the line on Sunday. Many congratulations to them, and to the fantastic and inspirational St Helenian crew on Cape Diem, and to all the competitors. The race, which will I hope become part of the regular calendar, would not have been possible without all those who helped on and off-Island. Many helped behind the scenes in the usual St Helenian way – quietly and with commitment.  A huge thanks goes to them.”
