Cape Peninsula: Fenn Cape Point Challenge 2011

[9:20 min] [Attribution: StupendisVid]

More entries than ever; the most women paddlers ever; eight of the thirteen previous winners... this is one of the longest, toughest surfski races in the world. This gruelling 50km race starts on the Atlantic coast in Scarborough and finishes in False Bay at the Fish Hoek Lifesaving Club. Paddling south, into the wind for half the race, negotiating the southwestern reefs around Cape Point, pausing...only...briefly to gaze up at a magnificent sight not seen by many.... and then (hopefully) catching the great runs created by the South-Easter from Cape Point to Fish Hoek.
