Trans Agulhas Inflatable Boat Challenge 

Trans Agulhas Challenge
Event Date: 28 December, 2021

Plettenberg Bay will play host to the first leg of the Trans Agulhas Inflatable Boat Challenge 2021 at the end of December.

Date: 28th December 2021
Time: 08:00 AM – 10:00 AM
Venue: Hobie Beach, Plettenberg Bay
Entry: FREE

Celebrating its 33rd anniversary, the fast-paced, action-packed water sport kicks off at Hobie Beach on 28 December and will see over 30 inflatable boats compete for top honours. Competitors will visit beaches along the coast between Nature’s Valley and Gordon’s Bay, where the race will finish on 31 December.

The first day is from Hobie Beach to Mosselbay.  The second leg is a grueling one from Mosselbay to Struisbaai and includes a night race. Day three sees the competitors racing from Struisbaai to Gansbaai.  The last leg is from Gansbaai to Gordon’s Bay Harbour.

Plettenberg Bay can look forward to hosting the racers and the supporters it attracts. It is great to have opportunities that encourage our communities to visit the area and this event is one that attracts many. The fast-paced, high adrenaline sport is a must to watch and spectators can expect some brave wave jumping as competitors go full throttle to be the best in the toughest inflatable boat race in the world.
