Southern Charter Grand Slam Championships
Sailing in the Western Cape will very soon witness the launch of a new and highly exciting competition-based dinghy racing initiative, the Southern Charter GRAND SLAM SERIES. The first of four such events during the 2012/2013 sailing season will take place at Zeekoe Vlei Yacht Club on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September, 2012. The series has attracted the kind support of a major sponsor – www.southerncharter.co.za
The Southern Charter GRAND SLAM SERIES is a completely new and exciting concept in South African Sailing aimed at taking sailing to a new and higher level in the Western Cape. It represents a paradigm shift away from what dinghy racing has represented over past years. Along with the EPIC SERIES it replaces the former numerous regattas that were previously held at multiple clubs during the past. The Southern Charter GRAND SLAM SERIES has as its foundations successful models used internationally. It has not only helped promote and build the exciting sport of competitive sport dinghy racing in some countries, but has also attracted the attention of young people looking for a new and vibrant sport-code in which to invest their time, energies and resources.
