Almost there, keep it together and you should be in for a cracker. Well the first long range weather forecasts are coming in and they seem to change from hour to hour so still nothing definite, but looking like a medium swell with not much wind at this stage, maybe a NW so long hard paddle home.

 

It is also with a heavy heart that I write this Blog, as the Peter Creese Lighthouse Race, the oldest and best race which until today was canceled, Peter was one of my and many of the other Fish Hoek paddlers hero's. He was also a two time winner of the Cape Point Challenge and one of his original hand built foam ski's is still around today and weighs 10kg.
