OVERVIEW In the last race in 2014, a total of eleven of the fleet of 37 boats had to retire in stormy weather, testament to the tough nature of the event. The event first took place in 1971 and since then it has become a byword for the glamour and gruelling nature of long-distance yacht racing. Royal Cape Yacht Club will host the event, which is sure to boost the coffers of Cape Town’s tourism industry. The Klein Karoo National Arts Festival (KKNK) is held every year in Oudtshoorn in April. It attracts hundreds of artistic productions of every sort, mostly in Afrikaans, with attendances normally topping 90 000 festival-goers
