The Legacy:

“…… Free your mind …..”


The Show:

With Table Mountain as the backdrop and multi coloured sails in the air, the colour bursts on the ocean has onlookers watching in awe. Seeing the sails launch high over Table Mountain only to land softly and line up for the next launch into the stratosphere. Competitors are tested to the limit pushing hard and feeling the camaraderie only felt by true modern day extreme gladiators….. It is a Feeling, Awareness, and a State of Mind!
