Hankey awarded best station MONIQUE BASSON

T is official – the Kouga region is home to the best police station and the best police cluster in the province. For the fourth year running the Hankey Police Station was named the Best Station in the Province in the Medium Station-category, while the Humansdorp Cluster won the Best Cluster Category in the Province. These awards were bestowed on the various police station during the Provincial Annual Service Excellence Awards ceremony held in East London. These awards acknowledge the work of officers who went above and beyond the call of duty to serve their community and prevent crime in the preceding year. According to Humansdorp Cluster Commander, Brigadier Neil Jantjies, these achievements are earned through dedication, teamwork, discipline and proper planning. “Problem crime areas were identified and pro-active steps were imme-

diately implemented to curb further escalation of crimes,” said Jantjies. Steps taken include reaction units that were implemented in St Francis Bay and Jeffreys Bay during the peak holiday season, ensuring visitors and locals a crime-free festive mood. Furthermore, hot spot areas - which included taverns - were identified and patrolled regularly. Contributing to the success of the Hankey Police Station is their adoption of a zero tolerance approach, which paid off as serious crimes decreases significantly when police targeted the petty crimes. “Most of our stations have a good relationship with the Crime Prevention Forums and the communities. This is important, because when we work together we can definitely make a difference in the communities we serve,” said Jantjies. A proud lt. col. Ezrah Sefaley, who has been at the head of the Hankey Police Station since 2009, attributes his success through leading from the front and getting involved and understanding the needs of his community.

Man in hof ná hy glo sy vrou voor huis skiet RIAAN MARAIS

&

ILSE KRIGE

’N Man van Jeffreysbaai het Vrydag in die Humansdorp-landdroshof verskyn nadat hy glo sy vrou en nog ’n man voor sy huis raakgeskiet het. Aldolfen Gideon van den Berg (43) is op drie aanklagte van poging tot moord aangekeer nadat hy glo ’n man in die maag gewond het, op nog ’n vrou geskiet het en in die proses sy eie vrou in die heup gewond het. Sy is ná behandeling ontslaan. Die skietery het gevolg nadat hy na bewering van ’n ongelukstoneel gevlug het. Marnic Tait (23), het aan Die Burger vertel hoe sy verlede Dinsdagaand vir haar lewe gevrees het toe die skote begin klap het. Tait het omstreeks 5.45nm. by ’n stopteken in Seetuinweg gestop toe die verdagte na bew-

ering agter in haar voertuig vasgery het. Tait, pas afgestudeer by die Universiteit Stellenbosch, het verlede week van haar ouerhuis op Mosselbaai op Jeffreysbaai aangekom om as juwelier in die Fonteine-winkelsentrum te werk. “Die man het verbygejaag en my motor weer getref, aan die regterkant, met die verbyry. Hy het weggery en ek het agter hom aangery,” het Tait vertel. Die man het in Olienhoutstraat, Wavecrest, voor sy huis gestop. “Ek het die polisie en my pa in Sea View in die Baai gebel. My pa het een van sy vriende, Christo Khun, gestuur om my te help totdat hy kon kom,” het Tait vertel. Sy het met die man gepraat en alles het kalm gelyk – selfs toe Kuhn aankom, het Tait gesê. “Maar hy het die heeltyd geluister met wie ek praat toe ek gebel het. Hy het aangedring dat geen polisie betrek moes word nie.”

Intussen het die man se vrou met hul twee kinders by die huis aangekom. “Daar was nie argumente of stryery of snaakse vibes nie. Die man het uit die huis gestap gekom en toe Christo sy foon neersit, hoor ek net ’n skoot klap – heeltemal uit die bloute. “Ek het omgedraai en gehardloop,” het sy vertel. Ellen Hancke berig dat die verdagte se vrou in die heup gewond is toe sy glo tussenbeide wou tree. Lt.kol. Priscilla Naidu, polisiewoordvoerder van die Uitenhage/Humansdorppolisiëringsgebied het die voorval bevestig. Naidu het gesê die verdagte het homself en sy twee kinders in die huis toegesluit en geweier om uit te kom toe die polisie op die toneel aankom. “Ná ’n kort onderhandelingsproses het hy homself oorgegee en is in hegtenis geneem.”

Polisie misdaad­bewus die feesseison MONIQUE BASSON

ELLEN HANCKE

INWONERS van en toeriste aan Jeffreysbaai mag die feesseisoen dink hulle sien dubbel, of in die geval ses-voudig. Om belangrike inligting oor misdaad in die dorp so gou as moontlik onder die publiek se aandag te bring, het die Jeffreysbaai-polisie in samewerking met Fountains Mall ses lewensgroot borde van stasiebevelvoer lt. col. Zolani Xawuka op strategiese plekke in Jeffreysbaai geplaas. Volgens ao. Petra Els van die JeffreysVat No. 4270253786 Reg No. 2008/019112/07 baai-polisie gaan kriEngineering in Waterproofing tiese inligting, soos byvoorbeeld ’n vlaag Stephen du Plessis Fax: 086 567 7393 van winkeldiefstaf of 072 337 7407 Email: onthespot@telkomsa.net motorbande, op die 042 294 0846 web: onthespotengineering.co.za borde aangebring

word sodat die publiek dadelik daarvan bewus gemaak kan word. Die borde pryk op die hoofstrand, Fountains Mall, Equinox Mall en die Spur. Die Jeffreysbaai-polisie, in samewerking met ’n plaaslike insleepdiens en ’n huurmotor-onderneming, het verder nagebootste ongelukstonele by die verskillende ingange na Jeffreysbaai opgestel. Dié ‘ongelukstonele’ wat bestaan uit motorwrakke waaruit winkelpoppe se liggaamsdle hang en ’n klipgraf met ’n hand wat uitsteek, het inwoners behoorlik warm onder die kraag. Die algemene gevoel is dit is beslis nie ’n hartlike verwelkoming vir vakansiegangers nie. Els sê die nabootsings is ’n pro-aktiewe projek en mense moet die negatiewe gevolge van drankmisbruik en roekeloosheid besef. “Dit is nie bedoel om mense te ontstel en emosies op te rui nie, maar om die realiteit van verkeerde besluite in te skerp.” Stasiebevelvoer lt. col.

Blouvlag gehys by Dolfynstrand

IT was so hittete of Kersvader se jolige liggies het die amptelike hys van die gesogte Blouvlag by Dolfynstrand in die wiele gery.

Dié vlag kon nie op die tradisionele manier gehys kon word nie en ht halfmas na die grond teruggetuime, Nieteminhet vasbeslote munisipale amptenare binne ’n ommesientjie ’n kersieplukker-vragmotor (cherry picker) nadergewink om hulle met die belangrike taak te help. Die oorsaak van al die drama? Vrolike Kersliggies, spesiaal vir die feestyd opgesit, het die vlag se pad boontoe versper. Die gesogte Blouvlag is Vrydag vir die negende agtereenvolgende jaar onder groot toejuiging op die hoofstrand gehys. Volgens Booi Koerat, uitvoerende burgemeester, is Dolfynstrand een van die Kouga se grootste bates wat jaarliks deur honderde vakansiegangers en plaaslike inwoners besoek word. “Dié internasionale toekenning beteken oneindig baie vir die streek en gee plaaslike toerisme ’n hupstoot. Verder bring dit ook mense bymekaar en dra by tot broodnodige werkskepping in die gebied,” sê Koerat. Volgens Koerat is herhaalde rioolstorting op dié strand nou hopelik iets van die verlede met die onlangse opgradering van die pompstasies en die installering van nuwe pompe. “Ons is positief dat ons die probleem opgelos het en dat dit nie verder ’n bedreiging vir ons blouvlagstatus inhou nie.” Met die toekenning in die sak, rus Kouga egter nie op sy louere nie en gaan St. Francisbaai van volgende jaar vir die eerste keer ook om Blouvlagstatus meeding.

oof llêê nna a 442 2 jjaar aar ddie ie ttuig uig nneer eer H Hoof MONIQUE BASSON

“E

K kry skoon hoendervleis as ek dink dat more my laaste dag is. Vir 28 jaar het ek elke dag van die week dieselfde pad gery, en nou gaan alles verander.”

Na 42 jaar in die onderwys, lê Cedric Nel, skoolhoof by die Laerskool Kruisfontein, die tuig neer. Foto: MONIQUE BASSON

Só vertel skoolhoof van die Laerskool Kruisfontein in Humansdorp, Cedric Nel (62), Maandag. Na 42 jaar in die onderwys, waarvan 32 as skoolhoof was, lê Nel op 1 Januarie 2013 ampetlik die tuig neer. Nel het sy onderwysloopbaan by die Laerskool Misgund in die Langkloof begin waar hy na nege jaar as skoolhoof van die voormalige Kruisfontein UCC aangestel is. Toe die skool sy deur in 1982 sluit, is hy na die Laerskool Graslaagte in Humansdorp verplaas. In 1985 is Nel as die eerste skoolhoof van die huidige Laerskool Kruisfontein in diens

geneem. Dit is hier waar hy talle hoogte- en laagtepunte beleef het, en Dinsdag vir die laaste keer sy kantoordeur toegetrek het. Volgens Nel is dit ’n gelukskoot dat hy in die beroep beland het wat hy vir niks op aarde sal verruil nie. “Na ek matriek geskryf het, was daar nie geld om verder te gaan studeer nie. In daardie stadium het die Departement van Onderwys lesings vir onderwysstudente aangebied, en dit is toe dat ek besluit het om in die rigting te gaan studeer,” vertel Nel. “Die dag toe ek voor my eerste klas as ’n gekwalifiseerde onderwyser gestaan het, het ek geweet dit is wat ek vir die res van my lewe wil doen. Dít is waarvoor ek gebore is.” Nel kan met trots terugkyk op ’n loopbaan vol hoogtepunte en prestasies. In 2008 is die laerskool aangewys as die Fokusskool in die Kouga-gebied en is kort daarna gekroon as die beste Fokusskool in die Uitenhage Skoledistrik. “Die toekenning gaan aan ’n skool vir uitstekende prestasies op akademiese gebied en wat ’n leidende rol in onderwyskringe speel,” sê Nel met trots. Nog ’n hoogtepunt vir hom is die bydrae wat hy oor die jare tot skolesport kon lewer. Nel het in 1997 by skolesport betrokke geraak en is as die voorsitter van die Sport Unie Humansdorp en Distrikunie aangewys. Onder sy leiding is die Suidoos-Kaap Skolesportraad gestig. Hy het hom daarvoor beywer om die Gamtoos, Langkloof en Tsitsikamma, wat voorheen nie georganiseerde sport aangebied het nie, by kompeterende sport betrokke te kry. Daar was ook laagtepunte oor die jare. “Daar was baie dae wat ek gevoel het dat ek my goed wil vat en loop. Die moelikste tye was veral die afgelope vyf jaar. Aan die begin van ’n nuwe jaar het jy nooit geweet hoeveel onderwysers daar gaan wees nie. Dan is daar die nie-betaling van tydelike onderwysers. Hoe kyk jy jou kollegas in die oë as jy weet dat hulle nie vir hul harde werk betaal word nie,?” sê Nel. “Daar was nie een dag wat ek gevoel het dat ek wil loop as gevolg van die kinders nie. Die kinders en al hul moeilikheid en probleme was nooit te veel vir my nie.” Volgens Nel gaan hy dit die meeste mis om met die kinders te werk. Tweede op sy lys is sy staatmakerpersoneel gevolg deur die streng roetine wat sy dae gekenmerk het. “Gedurende my tydperk as skoolhoof van die Laerskool Kruisfontein, het ons ’n hele paar goed reggedoen. As almal daarop kan voortbou en die lesse wat ons uit die verlede geleer het ter harte neem, sal dit goed gaan met die skool en die leerders,” sê Nel. “Verder moet ouers verantwoordelikheid neem vir die toekoms van hul kinders.”

Top music acts for ‘Friendly’ Arts Festival

HE inaugural Ebubeleni Arts Festival scheduled for December 29 in Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, boasts a strong and exciting line-up of national and local artists, with the aim of making this an annual event.

Ebubeleni means “friendly” and is a reference to PE being known as the Friendly City. It will be held at the Heatherbank Sports Club in Walmer. Among the national acts are the Parlotones, Stimela, Zonke, Theo

Kgosinkwe, Toya Delazy, AKA and MiCasa; while five local acts and bands will also perform. “We have been carefully planning this event for the past five years and feel the time is right to stage it now. This is because we have the necessary capabilities and capacity to present a very successful event,” said the show’s producer Tembi Mahambehlala. “We felt PE deserves a signature event like this. For a long time PE has been a spectator while other ma-

jor metros in the country host annual events of this nature boosting tourism in those regions. We want this event to contribute to job creation in the region, as we all know how dire the economy is in the country, especially in this region,” said Mahambehlala. According to Mahambehlala, the line-up was deliberately designed to have a crossover look and appeal so as to promote social cohesion while attracting a broader audience. Mahambehlala’s experience in-

cludes working at big Festivals, such as the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz, Macufe, Diamonds and Dorings and the Tribute Concert at Moretele in Tshwane. Another coup for the show organisers is Zonke, who despite being one of the top-selling artists in recent times, has not performed in her hometown of PE since she came to fame. It has also been decades since Stimela has set foot in the Bay and members of the group have expressed excitement returning to per-

LUNA PAIGE AT POTTER’S PLACE

form in PE after a long absence from these shores. Ebubeleni Arts Festival is a homecoming event with a picnic feel and strives to provide entertainment for the people of Port Elizabeth and surrounding areas.. Gates for the festival open at 1pm and the show starts at 2pm. Tickets are R120 for ordinary tickets and R150 for Golden Circle tickets and are available at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers. No tickets will be sold at the gates.

MANUEL ESCORCIO TO PERFORM IN JEFFREYS Private Care Ambulance Service will host a Christmas and Gospel Show with Manuel Escorcio at 10am 7.30pm on December 21 at the NG Church Com­ plex in Jeffreysbay in aid of CNASA. Tickets will be on sale at the door. For tickets or information, phone 0 083 587 7556.

raak.

IE Humansdorp Museum, geleë in die hartjie van dié historiese dorpie, is ’n plek waar oud en jonk in die verlede verlore kan

Items van die ryk 1800s pronk trots om elke hoek en draai. Hier kan besoekers loer na meelsiwwe met ’n storie oor ’n wêreldoorlog, ’n ou grammofoonspeler, ’n traporreltjie, asook klere en breekware wat dikwels net in geskiedenisboeke te sien is. Híér leer ’n mens oor skeepswrakke, medisinale plante en verskillende kulture van die streek. Soos wat jy by die deur instap en na links kyk, trek ’n ou grammofoon, wat meeste van ons nog net in prente gesien het, en ’n ou Chicago Cottage traporrel wat uit 1879 dateer, dadelik die aandag. Carel Ferreira, ’n vrywilliger by die museum, skuif hom gemaklik agter dié traporrel reg en streel liefderyk oor die klawers voor hy met oorgawe begin speel. Die klanke van Sonop oor die Veld deur Sussie en Willie Cooper vul binne sekondes die vertrek. Met die lied bring hy ook sy eie stukkie geskiedenis na die museum. “Dié lied lê my baie na aan die hart. Ek het dit vir die eerste keer in 1959 onder die bekwame leiding van my musiekonderwyser by die destyds Hoërskool Humansdorp leer speel. Dit is ook hier waar die musiekgogga my gebyt het en nog nooit weer laat gaan het nie.” Reg langs die orreltjie staan nóg ’n hoogtepunt wat elke besoeker aan die museum

Dit is toe dat hulle die onwettige siwwe gemaak het, en skelm meel vir witbrood gesif het. “Ek onthou nog my ma se woorde van 1948 toe sy in ekstase die pragtige wit meel geprys het.

bloed laat vloei

‘n Spesiale bloedskenk promosie word beplan by Fountain’s Mall in samewerking met Bay FM 107.9 op Dinsdag, 18 Desember 2012 vanaf 10vm. tot 5nm. Die mikpunt is om ten minste 50 eenhede bloed in te samel. Bay FM gaan sorg vir ‘n feestelike atmosfeer terwyl hulle mense sal aanmoedig om bloed te skenk gedurende hierdie uitdagende tyd. Fountain’s Mall het die area oorkant Ocean Basket beskikbaar gestel vir hierdie promosie en is trots om deel te kan wees van die inisiatief. Die feesseisoen gaan gewoonlik gepaard met ernstige bloedtekorte en hierdie jaar is glad nie anders nie. Bloed en bloedprodukte word op ‘n daaglikse basis regoor die land benodig vir die behandeling van verskeie mediese kondisies en duisende mense word hierdeur geraak. Ten tye van erstige bloedtekorte, is dit algemeen vir die bloeddiens om hierdie kosbare produk spaarsamig uit te reik, deur ‘n limiet daarop te plaas waar hospitale, privaat of staat, regoor die land geraak word. Dit beteken dat daar nie in die aangevraagde hoeveelheid bloed voorsien kan word nie, aangesien daar minder bloed uitgereik word. Elke saak word individueel oorweeg afhangende van die diagnose en kondisie van die pasiënt. Volgens die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Bloeddiens word die inwerkingstelling van bloedlimiete ten alle koste vermy, maar ongelukkig is dit algemeen tydens die feesseisoen as gevolg van die afname in bloedskenkings. Maryke Harris, Skakelbeampte vir die area sê: “Ons maak staat op die Kouga-gemeenskap om hul omgee-gesindheid uit te leef, deur moue op te rol en bloed te skenk.” Verskeie gelukkige pryse is op die spel en die dag sal sekerlik ‘n groot verskil maak in soveel mense se lewens. Mense kan so gereeld as elke 56 dae bloed skenk en dit is belangrik om ‘n goeie maaltyd ongeveer vier ure voor die tyd te nuttig. Bloedskenkers moet tussen die ouderdomme van 16 en 65 wees, meer as 50kg weeg en ‘n gesonde lewenstyl handhaaf.

7 in 10 South Africans to overindulge NEARLY all of us (76%) admit to eating more than usual during the festive period and will on average gain 2kg in weight according to a just-released national year-end survey by Pharma Dynamics, a leading provider of heartburn medication in SA. With the seasonal festivities soon being upon us, many will be getting merry on too much wine at the office party, stuffing ourselves with treats and eating our way to the New Year on leftovers, but can our bodies take it? Mariska Fouche, spokesperson for Pharma Dynamics says it’s normal to see a spike in heartburn medication sales over the festive period, and emergency rooms equally report an increase in patient visits seeking relief from some form of abdominal discomfort. “After Christmas many suffer from digestive problems caused by too much food and alcohol, with the most common problem tending to be indigestion or reflux brought on by eating too much sugary and fatty foods,” says Fouche. The Pharma Dynamics poll confirmed that after eating Christmas dinner a staggering 55% of South Africans suffer from indigestion, 49% experience heartburn and 42% of us are burdened with flatulence. Nearly a third also admitted to rushing their food in anticipation of the next course. “Indigestion can indeed be caused by eating too quickly. As it takes time for the feeling of satiety to come through most people just keep on eating with no breaks. Not chewing your food thoroughly and the stress of multitasking – often associated with the party season – are

sure tickets to increased stomach acid and heartburn flare-ups. “Overindulgence can lead to very severe inflammation of the stomach lining or in the throat from all the acid that comes up and could even lead to a long-term problem such as ulcers, gallstones, irritable bowel syndrome or a hiatus hernia. “For people who are already prone to heartburn, piling on the weight, particularly around the stomach, can also intensify it, so try to eat and drink in moderation. Fouche has some tips to help people make the most of their holidays while keeping heartburn in check: .Steer clear of foods or drinks that make symptoms worse .Reduce meal portions .Eat slowly and take a break between courses .Alternate alcohol drinks with water .Don’t go to bed or exercise on a full stomach .Opt for salads, lean meats, fish and light sauces whenever possible. “Try to reduce other factors that may aggravate heartburn such as stress, which is very much part and parcel of the holidays and take an over-the-counter antacid or ask your doctor or pharmacist for medication that will reduce the amount of stomach acid that is produced to avoid potential festive health woes,” says Fouche. More than 2 373 South Africans between the ages of 18 and 60 took part in Pharma Dynamics’ national online survey. Source: Lange Strategic Communication

Children an important part of home security TWO of the most common ways unwanted visitors gain access to a property are when children are at home alone - especially over the forthcoming end of year holidays when their parents are at work and of course weekends. With many dual-income households, children commonly spend more time on a property on their own without their parents and yet often they are forgotten when home security planning is concerned. Chubb Fire and Security suggests the following: 1. Remember your children when planning for your home’s security, especially when they are at home alone or during weekend or holiday periods. 2. Many home burglaries or hold-ups occur because children haven’t been told what to do when this happens. 3. Children must never allow unannounced visitors onto the property. 4. Children should be taught how to answer a telephone or gate intercom without betraying the fact that they are alone. 5. Rather than acknowledging that their parents are away from the property, they should say that the required person is not available and ask the caller to leave a message.

Safety tips to prevent crime CHUBB has the following advice to protect you and your family from crime: )Be aware that you could be a victim at any time. )Try not to go out alone late at night. If this is not possible, stay in well-lit, busy areas. )Make sure your perimeter gate is securely closed before leaving home.

)When returning home, be vigilant and be aware of your surroundings. )If you feel you are being followed, drive to the nearest police station )Do not park in dark, unattended areas. )Stay alert and pay attention to your surroundings. Source: Chubb Securtiy

Drs. Visser, Erasmus, Vawda and Partners Radiology Practice Thermography vs Mammography We would like to express our dissatisfaction with the recent article on thermography of the breasts which was published in the Kouga Express on October 30, 2012 as supplied by Thermal Health Solutions in Jeffreys Bay. Reference was made to mammography, but numerous inaccurate statements regarding mammography and its scientifically proven role in the screening for breast cancer were made. On June 2, 2011 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States issued a communication to alert the public, including women and health care providers, that thermography is not a replacement for screening mammography and should not be used alone to diagnose breast cancer. The FDA is not aware of any valid scientific data to show that thermographic devices, when used on their own, are an effective screening tool for any medical condition including the early detection of breast cancer or other breast disease. Breast cancer in South Africa is the most common cancer in white women and the second most common cancer in black women. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) in the United States estimates that about 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in her life. Mammography is still the most effective screening method for detecting breast cancer in its early, most treatable stages. Results from clinical trials and other studies show that screening mammography can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 70 and is promoted actively for this reason in the United States and the European Union.

6. On no account should a visitor be allowed onto the property unannounced or without their parent’s permission. 7. Your children should never be cajoled into going to the property’s gate to investigate an unannounced visitor. 8. Your children should know the location of your panic buttons, and more importantly, how to use them. If you have decided to invest in remote panic buttons, make sure your children have one at their disposal. 9. An easily accessible list of emergency contact numbers such as you and your spouse’s work and cell phone numbers as well as those of the immediate neighbours, your security company, the South African Police Service and other emergency services, such as the Fire Department, should be left near the home’s main phone. 10. Most children have cell phones – input these numbers into their phones and if they have the facility, show your children how to use the speed dial facility on their phone. 11. It is advisable and indeed necessary to frequently test any fixed or mobile panic buttons, but please advise your Monitoring Centre first. False alarms cost lives and to do this as a means of testing response times could cost a person his life. Source: Chubb Security

The most important factor in survival is the early detection of breast cancer. Screening mammograms do not only detect cancers which present as mass lesions in the breasts, but can also find microcalcifications (tiny deposits of calcium) that sometimes indicate the presence of breast cancer. A mammogram can be combined with an ultrasound to further improve the detection of early breast cancer. In high risk patients an MRI scan of the breasts can also be considered for screening purposes. What are The National Cancer Institute' s recommendations for screening mammograms? Women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every 1 to 2 years. Women who are at higher than average risk of breast cancer (for example, because of a family history of the disease) should talk to their health care providers about whether to have mammograms before age 40 and how often to have them. Other screening methods (e.g. breast MRI) can also be considered. As for concerns about exposure to radiation from a mammogram, evidence shows that the benefit far outweighs the risk of harm, especially when compared to the danger of breast cancer. Thermography is not a substitute for mammography and thermography should not be used alone to screen for or to diagnose breast cancer. Thermography may be used to supplement information from mammography, but it must be kept in mind that it can' t always detect small cancers, nor cancers situated deep in the breast.

DIE Oos-Kaapse nooddienste waarsku strandgangers om die komende somer versigtig te wees wanneer hulle die water aandurf. Hulle waarsku veral teen springgetye, sleurstrome en strande waar geen lewensredders aan diens is nie. “Ons kry reeds lekker somerdae, so mense gaan van nou af al hoe meer na die strande begin stroom,” het John Fletcher, reddingkoördineerder van Kus-en-waterredding in Port Elizabeth, gesê. Die Nasionale Seereddingsinstituut het

ook teen springgetye gewaarsku. “Springgety beteken hoër as normaal hoogwater en laer as normaal laagwater. “Dit dra by tot die verskuiwing van sandbanke en die vorming van onderwaterslote,” het Fletcher gesê. Hy waarsku dat dié verskuiwing inmekaar kan tuimel en baie sterk sleurstrome kan vorm. “Sleurstrome kan tussen 100 m en 200 m lank wees en vorm ’n kanaal wat ’n mense dieper see-in sleep.” Hy sê indien jy in een vasgevang word, moet jy nie daarteen baklei nie, maar eerder saamdryf en na die kant probeer beweeg. Sodra jy uit die stroom kan ontsnap, kan jy weer terug kuswaarts swem.

YOUR CONCRETE FUTURE

In Januarie 2012 het Simstone (Pty) Ltd., 'n maatskappy wat bekend is vir sy hoë kwaliteit voorafvervaardigde betonprodukte, 'n fabriekstak in Humansdorp oopgemaak om sodoende die Ooskaap te kan bedien. Die beste besluit wat Simstone se Bestuur kon neem toe hulle nuwe voertuie moes aankoop, was om die plaaslike ekonomie in Humansdorp te ondersteun. Vanaf die eerste dag wat ons kwotasies by Kouga Ford aangevra het, het ons uitstekende diens vanaf al die personeel ontvang. Pieter Muller, baie dankie vir al die moeite wat jy gedoen het om die Fordbakkies betyds te kry en vir die reëlings om die ekstra's betyds gemonteer te kry. Dankie ook dat julle reëlings getref het vir 'n voertuig op die lughawe wat tot Simstone se beskikking was vir 'n hele naweek. Voorwaar uitsonderlike diens. Dit was 'n groot voorreg vir die Simstone Span om met Kouga Ford besigheid te doen.

HE Robben Island crossing is regarded as one of the toughest open water swims in the world. Cold water, apex predators, swimming through a busy shipping lane, big swells and wind whipped seas are some of the challenges awaiting the ocean swimmers who want to tackle one the world’s iconic open water swims.

Local swimmer Brenton Williams took on the challenge last Monday morning in 12 degree water and a bumpy sea to became the first person in the world to swim from 3 Anchor Bay to Robben Island….butterfly. Williams was allowed only to swim in a speedo and wear a swim cap and goggles. Nobody has ever contemplated swimming butterflyfly over the 11.5K channel before and the vast majority of Robben Island crossing are done between the Island and Blouberg beach, a 7.6km stretch of water. Another South African swimmer, Chris Barnard completed the Blouberg crossing swimming butterfly in February 1990 and it’s taken 22 years

for another swimmer to step up and take on the butterfly challenge. Peter Bales, the chairman of the Cape Long Distance Swim Association was at the start of Williams’ swim at 3 Anchor Bay and said that he never thought he would see another butterfly swimmer taking on Robben Island. “Chris Barnard was a phenomenal swimmer and I really never thought I would see somebody else try to fly the Robben Island crossing. Brenton’s swim was an epic,” said Bales. Conditions were not ideal for a butterfly crossing with the water at 12 degrees and a lumpy surface which added to the challenge that faced Williams. “I was in Cape Town for the 5K Shipwreck swim which was held in 11 degree water along the Blouberg coastline on Sunday and Derrick Frazer made the call that there was a window for a Robben Island crossing early Monday morning,” said Williams. “Although conditions were not ideal, I felt that we had to make use of the opportunity and have a shot at the 11.5K crossing. “After I had settled down, I realised it was going to be a hard swim as my shoulders were still stiff from the

Marina Mile takes to the water IT is that time of the year again when locals and holidaymakers alike dust off their swim goggles and take on the challenge of swimming a Mile in the pristine canals of Marina Martinique. The action starts on Saturday morning, December 22 when swimmers will be faced with a double mile through the canals. What makes the Marina Mile so special is the swimmers going past houses and being cheered on by the residents of the Marina who all enter into the spirit of the event. Then the bank-to-bank swim and the 500m swim will take place. Both these events are for novice open water swimmers and there is no entry fee for the bank to bank swim. The action will hot up at 11.30am when the women’s mile

takes to the water. Olympian Jessica Roux could be in the starting line up to defend her title as queen of the Marina Mile. At 12.30pm the men’s mile will start and this is always a fast race in the salt canals of Marina Martinique. Sunday, December 23 will see the big guns in South African open water swimming circles take on the daunting 25K swim, with shorter 10K and 5K events also taking place. All the swims will take place at the old shark aquarium at the Marina. Pre-entries have opened at www.swimmingplus.com There will be a training swim on Friday afternoon at 4.30pm pm and another swim at 4.30pm on Tuesday afternoon.

Shipwreck swim the previous day where we swam through patches of water that were around 10 degrees. “The last 3 K was really tough and I had to dig deep to keep the rhythm going and the Island just didn’t seem to be getting any closer. When it looked like we were really close to shore we discovered there was a huge kelp bed we had to swim though to reach the Island. It was hard swimming fly through the kelp and it took about 20 minutes to swim the last couple of hundred metres. At the same time getting close to the finish was a really special moment in my life as Robben Island has played a significant role in South Africa’s history and to complete an unprecedented swim was a great feeling. Things seemed to go in slow motion and the sea calmed down close to the shore” said Williams after setting a new world record.” After taking some time to recharge his shoulders and organise the Swimming Plus Marina Mile which is on December 22, Brenton will take a look at breaking the South African record of 15km for the longest open water butterfly swim.
