ARTICLES OF INTEREST

ROWING

Cape Coastal Rowing From our Commodore - 2020 opened with the possibility that South Africa’s Olympic rowing team would make the country proud at the Tokyo Olympics in July 2020. It was disappointment all round when the Olympics were postponed to July 2021. But there is never a dull moment in rowing and the year ended on a high note with Cape Coastal’s Zirk Botha departing Cape Town for an epic 8000km row to Rio de Janeiro, going strong as we speak. If he succeeds, as we have no doubt he will, he will be the first solo rower to cross the Atlantic. CCRC and FBYC are right behind him.

In the meantime, CCRC members have been making the most of the lull in the South Easter to catch up on rowing hours missed this year. We have had fewer visitors than usual, for obvious reasons, but welcomed Andre from Lake Geneva as well as South Africa’s reigning u16 double sculls champions, as well as SA lightweight champ Adrian Buddingh ex Vikings in JNB, all who were excited to try coastal rowing.

The year ahead brings some uncertainty for all of us. We have fewer trips and tours planned and are not certain when our Lawhill Maritime School rowing programme will be able to reopen safely. The moral of the story seems to be Carpe Diem, seize the day! And so, with our humour, masks and sanitizer, we will continue to do just that.

Best wishes to all, Sasha Planting - CCRC Commodore

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.
