A unique event is taking place on the south west coast of Madagascar in October. The Malagasy Cup is a race from Anakao to Andavadoaka (where Blue Ventures is based) for traditional Malagasy vessels, boutry and pirogue/lakarna vezo.
The race will be a spectacular event with dozens of vessels making the 200 kilometre journey in five stages stopping at: Tulear; Ifaty; Salary; Ambatamilo and finally Andavadoaka.
More information can be found at the Malagasy Cup website
The organisers are seeking participants as well as sponsors for what should be a memorable and dramatic race.
