The start of the Noordhoek Race at 10:00 am on Sunday 18 May 2014, saw 4 boats jockeying for position on the start line off the Shark Rock Pier. With light north wind the fleet had spinnakers up early and flying to the turn mark off Noordhoek Ski-boat Club (again thanks to their assistance). A pleasant beat back to Cape Receife for the homeward stretch, where the fleet were becalmed for a considerable time before the wind started to fill in from the east. Again the spinnakers made for a glorious run to the finish off Hobie Beach's Shark Rock Pier where a large raucous crowd cheered the . . .
19 May 2013 - another perfect winter's day and, true to the axiom that Port Elizabeth only has wind in every month with an R in it, the fleet started in none to one knot of wind. Some boats took all of ninety minutes to clear the harbour mouth and another thirty to clear the harbour wall before finally reaching the breeze just in line with Cape Reciefe. From there it was a broad reach and then a short downwind leg to the Noordhoek buouy kindly laid by Morven Maclean followed by an agonising series of tack to beat past Cape Recife and back to the harbour. Final Results: Tikalox II, . . .
Overall results from the Race of Cardinals sailed on 2 December 2012. This race was sailed in place of the Noordhoek race owing to the poor sea state west of Cape Receife.

Date: Sunday 2 December 2012 Skippers: 09h00 Start not before 09h30 Anticipated conditions: After 5 days of non-stop E ESE with Saturday expected to be a blast, sea state on Sunday could be interesting (take pill). Wind will be "shifty" light to moderate NE backing to SSW as day progresses. Rain is forecaste so don't forget the brollies. Tactics will be the order of the day, familiarization of Chart SAN 1024 is advisable. Boat Nav-instruments (depth) will be a big asset. Have a great sailing weekend. . . .
