ROWING

The past fortnight has been an eventful period, starting off with a small fleet of one quad and two doubles seeing off our fellow rower, Zirk Botha in his boat Ratel on the planned start of his ocean crossing journey to Brazil. Severe weather conditions unfortunately necessitated Zirk’s return to Granger Bay and the far south, where he’s managed to stay in shape while tweaking final preparations with Geordie Kohler, his CCRC friend in support. We hope to be waving Zirk off in the next few days and wish him all the very best for fair conditions and a safe journey to Rio.

We hope that our rowing activities will continue into the festive season when we welcome visiting counterparts and friends from national and possibly European clubs on our waters.

Yesterday’s conditions opened a pleasant window of opportunity for our outing to Partridge Point and Millers via Windmill in one quad, three doubles, and two singles on the water with the obligatory swims along the way. Well done to the quad and ladies double crews who went all the way to Partridge Point. Of particular significance on this journey was our coach master, Derrick Read’s completion of his return voyage from FBYC to Miller’s Point and back in a single scull with Bryne and Sasha next to him in the double. We salute you Derrick, as our second youngest rower who never fails to inspire us as you refuse to miss out on the fun, while coaching with the greatest of passion and care! Thank you.

We also managed to celebrate the end of this strangest year with the traditional club braai yesterday, where less than 20 of us gathered, hopefully saved by the fresh Easterly, and fermented beverages served by Eddie upstairs. More importantly, that the rest of our family who wisely chose to keep a low profile, knows that they were sorely missed!

Feel free to join us for a row, and see more of the CCRC fun and game at: https://www.facebook.com/capecoastalrowing

FBYC Cruising

The cruising groups intention is to improve communication and share with fellow sailors who may not be involved or have an interest in the club's racing WhatsApp group. The objective is to grow the active community of sailors at the club and use this as a platform for sharing joint sailing excursions whether it be for an afternoon raft up braai off Longbeach or an overnight crossing to Gordon's Bay. Sailors are encouraged to share your planned sailing trips, experiences and ideas on the group, there will additionally be planned cruise events arranged by club sailing in coming months.

Please feel free to share your experiences, knowledge and most of all your passion for sailing.
