Purpose of the
C31 Class Association.

The purpose of the Association is to provide fair,
fun and safe sailboat racing for its members by:

  • Providing a structure for the administration of the Cape 31 OneDesign class of boats, and for the exchange of information and ideas amongst members.
  • Protecting the one-design integrity of the Class and the Cape 31 One-Design Class Rules, without restricting owners’ rights to participate in handicap racing.
  • Protecting the Owner-Driver status of the Class.
  • Endeavoring to keep the building and maintenance costs as low as possible consistent with racing efficiency.
  • Sharing knowledge to broaden participation and expertise. Encouraging more experienced sailors to connect with those less experienced to provide direction and quicker learning.
  • Organising one-design class racing, regattas and championship events.
  • Promoting the Class throughout South Africa and beyond.
  • Developing an ethos in the Class that will strongly attract new owners and young sailors.
