This is awarded to the winner of the Cape to Rio Race on corrected time.

There are 32 oz. of 18ct gold in the stylised boat hull and the sails are sterling silver. 

The trophy was donated to the Royal Cape Yacht Club by the Chamber of Mines of South Africa for the inaugural race in 1971.

Two iconic cities with an epic journey in between.
