Cape 2 Rio Race 2023

Promotional Partnership to South Atlantic classic

Peters & May signed up as a Promotional Partner to the Cape 2Rio Race 2023 in Spring 2021. Organised by The Royal Cape Yacht Club & Iate Clube do Rio de Janeiro, this South Atlantic classic first ran in 1971 and will attract owners and teams from across the world.

Some yachts have already confirmed their entry up to be part of this race and many previous competing owners and teams have registered their intention to compete.

For yacht racers wishing to be part of this historic event, Peters & May have published a Mast Up, Keel On shipping schedule for services from the US, Australia and the Mediterranean from early November 2022. This support will be invaluable to the race, as it will ensure as many International yachts and race teams to the start line on January 2nd 2023.

When it comes to the Cape2Rio Race, Peters & May have shipped numerous boats into Cape Town for the event over the years, including 2017 liner honours race winner ‘Runaway’ and ‘Black Pearl’ who won on handicap the same year.  For the Cape2Rio Race 2023 we are delighted to have Peters & May as a promotional partner and we are already working together to develop routings out of Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, USA and Australasia. Their specialist team will assist race entrants with the provision of cost effective logistics options to get to the start line on 2nd January 2023.
