Rappahannock River Yacht Club

In August on the other side of the Atlantic, fellow RRYC sailors Danielle and George Kuper, Lance Franke and Stephanie Chaufournier presented the RRYC burgee to the Royal Cape Yacht Club in Cape Town South Africa.  

During their visit, the Lipton Cup Challenge -- made famous by the tea merchant Sir Thomas Lipton in 1909 -- was taking place.  The Lipton Cup has evolved into one of the most popular races among sailors in Southern Africa drawing racers from as far away as Mozambique to Namibia.
