The Governor’s Cup Yacht Race in the past occurred from False Bay Yacht Club near the historic Simon’s Town, South Africa to Jamestown, St Helena Island.

Every two years since 1996, intrepid sailors looking for a one-of-a-kind racing experience, have taken part in the Governor’s Cup Yacht Race, which after an 8 – 14 day handicap chase across the South Atlantic, culminates in an activity-filled stay on St Helena.
