Hout Bay Yacht Club’s Theo Yon skippered the crew of the LTC Phoenix to an impressive second position in the annual Lipton Challenge Cup, which took place in Table Bay last week. The team will form the nucleus of the crew which will race to Rio in 2017 aboard their newly acquired Gryphon. Team Gryphon still need sponsorship for their Rio campaign and are presently spending maximum time on the water in preparation for the Cape to Rio start in January. They will be competing in the False Bay Spring Regatta in September followed by the Simon’sTown to Mossel Bay Race. Contact Theo Yon on 072 448 3235 if you can help.
