We are so proud of our skipper, Matola Mwawa and his sailing partner Mcford M’bwana Issa for winning their division in the Malawi International Sailing Marathon.

They were loaned a Hobie Cat to sail by Hobie Cat South Africa, whose director was so impressed by their sailing prowess that he donated the yacht to Malawi.

This year the race began at Chembe Eagles Nest in Cape Maclear and ended up north in Nkhata Bay. The marathon ran from 28 June until 5 July.

Matola is back with us in Cape Maclear again, having to limit his sailing adventures to local cruises on Kayak Africa’s hand built catamaran. You know you are in safe hands when you sail with our intrepid skipper!
