World ARC 2024-25, Leg 9

Mauritius, Reunion Island, Richard's Bay, Cape Town
27th October – 28th November 2024, 2,400nm

After joining in Mauritius, we will set sail for Reunion Island. It is only a 24 hour sail, so a good shake down passage before heading onto South Africa. Reunion is a French dependency and the mountainous interior is dominated by the remains of 3 huge craters. There are many walking paths to fully appreciate the breathtaking volcanic scenery.

From here we set sail to Richard's Bay in South Africa. Richard's Bay is just north of Durban and we will have a few days exploring there before heading round to Cape Town. There are good opportunities here to explore inland nature and game reserves. It will then take around 10 days (weather depending) to hop round the coast. Arriving in to Cape Town and berthing in the V&A marina under the impressive Table Mountain will signal the completion of crossing the Indian  Ocean, and what better place to celebrate!

Due to the importance of sailing to Cape Town with the right weather conditions, we cannot guarantee exactly when we will arrive. Therefore we advise you not to book flights home in advance and to be aware that the end of this leg may require some flexibility.
