“City Slickers” Go Round & Round
So the wind was still blowing but that did not scare the old faithful City
Slickers, once again to take on the challenge of Beating There own Times.
With the 2nd last edition of the year Guy decided with help by Waggy to
add some spice to the course and change it up for the night. With some
new paddlers from Hungry they also run a Sup school , we did not want
them to suffer in the wind. So we decided to do a double loop of the island
and make it a 1.9km course for the night.
We all lined up and tried to stay upright in the wind, Adam counted us
down and off we went, Started like a down winder and even had a couple
of little runs. Guy got going and was gone, think he was trying to beat
some work problems out of his paddle. Craig Girdlestone, Waggy and Brad
Orkin were all in hot pursuit. Hetti and Andreas were showing some good
form and pushed the others hard in the start but the local knowledge of
the left hand paddling caught up to them. Lots of left hand paddling round
the island specially going twice round. Dean seamed to be lost and was
looking for Santa on the canal and Paul and Adrian were not in rein deer
delivery mode either.
Also welcome to Craig Algie and Collin van Zyl to the great City Slickers
time trial hope to see you guy’s every week. The price for Santa and Mrs
Claus must go to Hetti and Andreas you both did well welcome to Cape
Town enjoy your stay and come join us again. We finished off with some
cool drinks some green drinks and a couple of Boerie rolls.
Next week is the last edition for the year so come on down before you
head out to your vacation homes villas and hotels or camp sites. Come Beat
your time before the year is out and the next one starts because 2013 is
going to be fast and fun and Sup Cape Town is bring it All.
