The South African is the only winner of this race - so far...  but if rumour is correct, there's going to be a much bigger contingent of Aussies to challenge him in 2011.

The date has been put back to the end of June - and coincides with the Dunlop World Cup in Durban the weekend before (26 June).  You can get all the details of that race on  So... fly into Durban for one of the best and most reliable downwind races in the world...  and then fly on to Mauritius for another of the best and most reliable...  you get the picture!
