Hope you've enjoyed following the Cape to Rio Race 2017, presented by Maserati. The race has a rich history and a tremendous following, locally and internationally. As a club, we share the pride of presenting a transcontinental yacht race that is, quite frankly, an exotic, unique and original endeavor.
Very well done to all participants, both finished and to finish in the coming days; and to the effort of the organizing committee, many of whom have actually competed in this edition. We learn more with each race.
For those entries that faced adversity, and triumphed; as well to those who face the disappointment of not having attained your goals, we are so pleased that above all, through your decisions, you are safe. To those still out on the water, keep making good calls and following your dreams!
With an eye on the future of the race, growing contact, and in support of our (really) great yacht club, we've both made the call to self-fund a visit to Iate (i-a-t-e = yacht) Clube Rio de Janeiro, to congratulate the fleet and to recognize the asset of this South Atlantic jewel.
I look forward to witnessing Vitor's passionate message to the incredible bond between fellow sailors, in his mother tongue.
