The Ocean Race Cape Town Stopover


No other stopover city is as closely associated with The Ocean Race as Cape Town South Africa, which has so far welcomed the around- the-world fleet in 11 of the race's 13 editions - far more than any other host port. The 2022-23 race marks the eighth consecutive time that Cape Town has hosted a stopover.
