As he followed Jasper Mocke inside the rocks at Cape Point, 22-year-old Kenny Rice glanced back, looking for race favourite and defending champion Hank McGregor.  He was nowhere to be seen.  “Game on!” Rice thought to himself.  “Hurt the guys NOW!”

Two days out from the race, the weather forecast seems to have settled on a moderate southeaster for Saturday morning, which is good news for the paddlers!

Trained and Anxious

Cape Town, South Africa, Dec 2005

The Cape Point Challenge is looming...  Saturday at 05h00 local time the first batches will set off on the 56km journey from Soetwater to Fish Hoek.

The forecast is firming; looks like a moderate (i.e. 15-20kt) southerly wind.  There was a storm some time ago in the Southern Ocean which has sent a pulse of big swell (4m at 05h00, 5m by 08h00) our way.

1an.jpgA group of paddlers has been training for the Cape Point Challenge under the tutelage of Dawid Mocke. Last Friday he took us out onto the course to do the full 56km… Here’s the story.

On Thursday evening the group of intrepid paddlers met at Fish Hoek to put the surf skis onto the trailer that was going to be used the next day. Everyone was a little tense, including coach Dawid who seemed very focussed – perhaps he was feeling the responsibility for taking a bunch of novices through the Point… Then it was home to have supper. I’d previously mentioned to my wife apropos of nothing at all that Dawid had said that he always eats steak the night before a big race… The hint struck gold & a hearty steak washed down with a good Cape red made the ideal preparatory meal.
