Team Bridge arrived in CT & Oliver was quick to get out to join the Thursday evening race session off Big Bay! Trade wind switch off & this place is pretty relaxing – onshore sea breezes & warmer water temperatures have been the norm. We thought the best way to get the ‘fire in the belly’ was to climb the quickest, but steepest,gully to table mountain. A 1hr 30min ascent was well worth the massive view across to Cape Point & over the CT city. 700 mtrs down in just 30mins Tom & Guy showed how young knees work while Oliver , Eric & myself felt the pain on the descent way more!



Day 2 we made the hours trip to Langabaan to see old friends- Oscar, Ozzie, The Gorilla, Jarrad & more who were competing for freestyle in the bay. It’s a pretty big inland water with a strong thermal wind & a rather scary amount of generally weak kiters. A windy flat water session was had at ‘Pearly’s’ with other freestyle legends- Speisburg & Nils. Dolphins & seals were spotted out in the bay while we neally run over a snake in the road & witnessed a tortoise crossing a busy highway! A rather late ‘Brai’ was followed by a dash back to CT for some sleep.



Day 3 the wind was late filling in which suited the science & mathes revision! The boys showed the locals some skills & kited with Kevin Langeree off Big bay while mum & Dad worked on floaters!!! A mellow session with the kids on normal kite sizes & a thermal on shore seabreeze- plus the complete absence of other kiters- I forgot the south Africans do not do onshore!



So this is it- there seems to be no recession in South Africa & no Christmas! The climate is not too cold , not too hot, food is cheap, fillet steak is even cheaper! There seems to be wind & waves somewhere every day but we still have not worked out what to do at the cross junctions where we have to stop & everyone looks at each other & no one has a clue who has right of way!
