Oct 12, 2022

With less than a month to go the boatica Cape Town 2022 line up is filling up fast.

Our diverse range of exhibitors will be spread out across the water – with live demos and interactive experiences as well as under our marquee where you’ll be able to browse for sails, internal finishes and upholstery, decking, motors and spares to name but a few of the categories on display.


If you or your kids have ever wanted to trim the mainsail or beat their way to the mark then join Greg Bertish, founder of the Little Optimist Trust and The Great Optimist Race at his Little Optimist Sailing Academy hosted in partnership with SA Sailing. The clinic opens on Friday 28th October at 12h00 and continues throughout the weekend.  The Efoiling Cape Town team will be at waiting for you at stand number NW 7 for the duration of the show – don’t miss the opportunity to try your hand at something new!


If it’s a luxury lifestyle experience you’re after then don’t delay and book your tickets to “The Ultimate Yacht Experience”. A 2-hour VIP sailing trip to Camps Bay and back (weather permitting) on board the luxury Princess motor yacht with only 10 tickets available per time slot and drinks and snacks served throughout your Atlantic seaboard cruise.
