Level-headed, experienced and with their priorities on (1) safety (2) fun (3) and doing the best they can, the fabulous Albertyn family are back in the game, on their Leopard 40 catamaran, Myrtle of Bonnievale.

This will be their fourth race across the South Atlantic, and it’s very much a family affair with Pierre and his son PK co-skippering; together with matriarch Sonja and their second son, Pietman, and two friends Lize Maartens and Inge Swart.

There is no better embodiment of the family #AdventureofaLifetime
