Hermanus Whale Festival Old Harbour Open Water Swim Update 2013

Under strict supervision of the Hermanus NSRI, some 200 swimmers enjoyed the third annual Hermanus Old Harbour Open Water Swim. Following some treacherous weather the last couple of weeks the swimmers took part in challenges of 300 m, 750 m and 1,500 m. Thousands of spectators packed the cliff tops, enjoying the outing to Hermanus and watch how the swimmers juggle for position.

‘It was my most beautiful open water swim yet’ Tom Tate from Cape Town.

‘This was my first Old Harbour Swim and I will be back in 2014’ Tommie Kruger from Grabouw.

‘The Hermanus Old Harbour Open Water Swim is here to stay. It was enjoyed by one and all’ Deon Ferreira, member of Hermanus Adventures, presenters of the event.

Hermanus Whale Festival Mtb Rides Update 2013

More than 300 Mtb riders entered and braved the cold weather and took part in our Hermanus Whale Festival Mtb Rides on Saturday 28th September at Curro Hermanus. Participants could choose to do one of three distances, a 15km, 30km or 55km. There was lots of mud and even though the rain came down during the morning everyone had a fantastic time following the trails through the beautiful Hemel and Aarde Valley. Some of the riders commented that the ride was one of the most scenic in the Western Cape, beautiful yet taxing. The new single tracks were applauded as some of the best ever. The bridge crossings over the raging Onrust River received some ooo’s and aah’s with some riders rather walking across. [Nobody fell in!]

There were many lucky draw prizes with one lucky winner taking home a brand new MERIDA BIG NINE mountain bike.

These amazing trails would not have been possible without the co-operation and consent of all the land owners who allowed us to go over their farms. With kind consideration and very strict agreements between them and Hermanus Adventures these trails are now open to all! Get your permit today from Euodia Cycles or Wine Village. NO PERMIT, NO RIDE.

We would like to thank our sponsors SEEFF, Hermanus Nissan, Curro Hermanus, Glider sunglasses, Glaceau Vitamin Water, Second Skins, BUFF, Merida, Sumaridge Vineyards, Spookfontein, Euodia Cycles, Telegenix and Wine Village.
