WALKER BAY XTREME CHALLENGE

Cape Coastal Rowing Club embarked on an exciting first voyage in the Walker Bay Xtreme Challenge at the old harbour in Hermanus this past weekend. This event saw the little village come alive with an array of energetic tri-athletes, cyclists and runners who took to the streets just after sun-rise over two days.

The club entered two double sculls to compete in the 16.5km race in the same category as three surfskis, and two stand-up paddle boarders across the bay in two loops of 8km.

Congratulations to our teams who made it look easier than ever at an impressive average of 10.5km per hour! The first boat in was stroked by Gavin Kirk - ex club captain visiting from Ireland, and single sculler Deon van Wieringen, in bow. Together they shook off the winning female paddler close to the finish line who, at an impressive rate stayed in their wake and kept them on their toes for a while. The next boat in shortly afterwards was manned by the second formidable pair, Pieter Coetzer - CCRC Commodore in stroke, and Estelle Wiid - CCRC Vice Captain, in bow.

Congratulations everybody for doing so well in this new adventure. Here’s to more entries for the 2020 challenge!

Members Please Note:

The kayak racks at FBYC are pre-booked and paid for by members wishing to keep their kayaks/surfskis at FBYC.
A register and waiting list is kept at the office and rack allocations are monitored carefully.
Please do not just store your kayak/surfski in any empty rack as it will be removed and sold off if not taken away.
Please follow due process by contacting Yvonne Macdonald or Pieter Coetzer to put your name on the waiting list for a rack allocation.

The following were found in members’ racks and have been moved to the ground as we do not know who they belong to. Please remove as soon as possible.
