Dozens of celebrities and medical survivors will be taking to the high seas later this month for the annual Great Optimist Race in Cape Town.
The competitors - including CapeTalk's Pippa Hudson - will navigate the open waters of the V&A Waterfront in their 'Optimists' - tiny sailboats.
They'll be raising money for their chosen charities and the Little Optimist Trust.
One of those taking part is double-lung transplant patient Tanya Bothma.
Every day I get up I thank my donor, I thank my donor's family...I have so much to be grateful for!— Tanya Bothma
Since I got my double-lung transplant all I want to do is give back.— Tanya Bothma
The race gets underway at 12pm on 19 October and you can click here to back a boat and help raise money for charity.
