The West Coast of South Africa is well known for its legendary South Easter which makes Blue Bay Lodge the prefect destination for those who enjoy any kind of water and wind activities such as sailing.
This means that we are lucky enough to host events such as the Western Cape Championships sailing race in Saldanha Bay. A beautiful time to be in Saldanha and witness all the best the Cape has to offer in terms of sailing. This is not only fun for the sailors themselves sailing up and around our beautiful bay from 6-9 April, but also for the spectators who can sit and relax watching all the little (and not so little) sails go by.
This year the lagoon also had the annual Mykonos Offshore Regatta at Club Mykonos in Langebaan. This amazing race took place from the Royal Cape Yacht Club on Friday 24 February 2012 to Mykonos and then races around the bay the day after. With absolute perfect conditions and fantastic organising, this race is one not to be missed!
For those not yet at racing level, we also have the perfect conditions for those who have always dreamt of learning how to sail or even just to cruise along with someone else, wind your hair and taking in the beautiful West Coast coastline.
