Business as usual

The aches and pains of the last weeks race soon wear off and by the time the weekend comes along one is looking for something new to do. Saturday morning saw Chris bring Jess and Laura ( two of the MARS gang and his wife Gisele through to Plettenberg Bay for a bit of abseiling and then off to a talk by a French couple who walked through Africa. Laura did her first abseil and the rest enjoyed hanging in mid air over looking the Indian Ocean.

On Saturday afternoon I collected Sean Gannon Pennypinchers Plett owner and paddler and headed through to Swartvlei for a paddle orienteering race. We had not paddled together before but got into a good rhythm after a while and collected 7 of the 10 checkpoints on offer. This put us right up their in the men's doubles section. The race was won by Macain Adventure Addicts Graham Bird with Steph.

Sean was given a small glimpse into what it is like to chase around collecting checkpoints, taking short cuts and coming up with strategies to make the best use of the time available. Thanks for a great paddle Sean.
