Rocklands Farm development – over to you TERESA FISCHER

A

PROPOSAL to rezone Portions 1 and 2 of Rocklands Farm in Simon’s Town could result in 68 single residential freestanding units being built. The total size of the farm is approximately 38,7 ha and is currently zoned rural. The proposed development area is 15,03 ha and the development footprint would be 6,73 ha. The rezoning and subdivision application has been submitted by Rocklands Eco Estate. Lesley Shackleton, deputy chairperson of the Simon’s Town Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association, says the association is taking this application very seriously as it is outside the urban edge, and is currently examining the report. But the company conducting the public participation process, CCA, says the site is currently located within the urban edge as defined by the Peninsula Urban Edge Study (2001). The proposal project dates back to 2005, when public participation first began. However, in July 2006 the National Environment Act (NEMA) Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) regulations were promulgated and the application withdrew the initial application, re-submitting an application in September 2006. But due to a delay in the project and the amendments made to the EIA regulations 2010, the project file was closed by the Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning. It has now been re-initiated, but with differences to the original submission. Many objections received previously were about access being from Rocklands Road, but access is now proposed directly off the Main Road/M4. Pressure on the existing infrastructure was a common concern. It was also

noted that the farm is on a scenic route. Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) previously submitted a lengthy objection to the proposal. Spokesperson Merle Collins confirms TMNP is aware of the new application and will send written comment in due course. Collins could not say if the park’s previous objection would remain the same due to possible changes in the application. According to the vegetation report the majority of the site is categorised by natural vegetation that is endangered or vulnerable. Near natural vegetation occurs in areas above the 100m contour line. This is stated as making up 45% of the habitat, with 30% and 25% respectively stated as being degraded, for example by alien vegetation, and transformed by farming. Peninsula Sandstone Fynbos and Peninsula Granite Fynbos (PGF) vegetation types are found on site. PGF is rated as having high local and regional conservation value. A specialist study has revealed that Rocklands is a place of historical significance in terms of its landscape and built environment. Structures on the farm include a homestead with Georgian attributes. Other significant elements of the landscape include streams and dams and a historic midden. A Draft Basic Assessment Report (BAR) has been compiled and has been released for a 40-day public review and comment period. A hard copy of the report is available at the Simon’s Town Library, and can also downloaded from: www.ccaenvironmental.co.za Comments should reach CCA by Monday 30 April.

Why white has to be the new green

FROM today, we will be running a weekly column entitled “ConnectED” by People’s Post Editor Feroza MillerIsaacs.

TONY ROBINSON

THE heatwave has been almost enough to make one believe in global warming. Then, just when you think the “greenies” are right, you turn on the TV and see the biggest freeze in Europe for decades. From this you will gather that I have my doubts about climate scientists. I also have problems with weather predictions, served up on all the electronic media. This business of a 30% or 60% chance of rain is weird. Why do we never have a 50% or an 80% chance of rain? Weather forecasters have an abundance of information from satellites but they still get it wrong. One suspects that the whole job is turned over to computers which tell us that the temperature in Paarl will peak at precisely 37 degrees C . Wonderful, but how can they know the precise temperature at any given location and still be so vague about the really important things like rain? The heatwave also tells us important things about the way we live. In these informal times most of us have shed a layer of undergarments and things like jackets with collars and ties are on the way out. Now we wear baseball caps and walk around in a state of semi-undress at weekends. Any Arab from one of the desert tribes would tell us that we are mad and the only way to cope with real heat is to cover up and keep it out. Our complete failure to understand that can be seen in the way we build houses. All those big windows and, worst of all, black roofs! Solar water heaters have taught us just how effective the colour black is at absorbing the radiation from the sun. A one-square metre black panel can provide hot water for a family so you can imagine how much heat is absorbed by a whole roof. We try to deal with the problem by installing layers of insulation above the ceiling but all this does is trap the heat in the roof space

Dear reader, I have been in the Editor’s seat for eight months – two months as Acting Ed (couldn’t have been more real!) and six months as Editor. It has been a humbling and enriching experience, one my journalistic career of nearly two decades has certainly helped prepare me for. Though experienced in newsroom management, being Editor has given me a 360 degree look at the business of news in an organisation as vast and visionary as Media24. I have had the privilege and honour of engaging with people from all walks of life – from Athlone to Camps Bay, from Retreat to Fish Hoek. Just this weekend I rubbed shoulders with Cape Town’s celebrities, shaking hands with our gracious Mayor, Patricia de Lille, sharing a balcony with Top Billing presenter Michael Mol and his family, being assured by Mayco member of Safety and Security JP Smith that the hot firemen who led the Cape Town Carnival parade on Saturday were real firemen. The carnival was truly spectacular, reflecting the diversity and cultural wealth of the people under the African sun. Among my memorable experiences over the past eight months were watching entertainer Jayson King doing Elvis at the Joseph Stone auditorium, as if he weren’t a day over 20, and laughing raucously at Fish Hoek High School as “motormouth” Barry Hilton entertained during a fundraising event for Shark Spotters. I’ve been wined (non-alcoholically) and dined at some of the best restaurants, treated to fine entertainment, met many inspirational people, met people just like me, been touched by the stories we run each week, been moved by the emails from

where it builds up, drying out the timber and causing maximum expansion and contraction. A black cover over a confined and well insulated space is the way to make a solar oven! All roofs should be painted white because white reflects both light and heat, making it much easier to deal with the heat that does manage to penetrate. It is obvious, as any desert Arab will tell you. If the “greenies” jumped onto this bandwagon they might save the planet. Just imagine how much less electrity would be used by reducing the demand for air conditioning. We would all become nicer people if we lived in cooler homes. Productivity would increase. Kids studying for final exams in summer would get better marks. We would all become, cooler, wiser, saner and more productive. All the “greenies” have to do is ban black, red, grey and green roofs in hot countries and they will change the world. All roofs should be white, preferably ceramic white, so that they become heat shields to keep out the solar radiation.

readers pouring out their hearts to me. The most rewarding part of my job is the privilege, opportunity and ability we have, through our stories, to influence positive change and movement; when our stories make tangible differences in people’s lives, when organisations such as Loaves and Fishes are thrown lifelines by the generous communities we serve, saving the day for them and the many homeless and otherwise hopeless souls who depend on them. This makes the long hours, weekend work and deadlines all the more worthwhile. In addition to publishing 10 zoned editions each week, which are distributed to close to 320 000 homes in the southern suburbs, People’s Post also launched its website in August (www.peoplespost.co.za) and mobisite (ppost.mobi) shortly afterwards. I look forward to engaging with you through my column and invite you to connect with me directly at feroza@peoplespost.co.za. Please send me suggestions of the type of stories you’d like to see in your edition of People’s Post. Till next time, go well!

Fish Hoek comes out STAFF REPORTER

FOLLOWING this year’s successful Cape Town Gay Pride event, questions have been asked about why the rainbow colours do not extend further into the peninsula.

GENEROUS DONATION: Masiphumelele Hall, near Kommetjie, received a stove and fridge through “messiahs” from Ger­ many, namely Joerg Dulske (above) and Iris Huettner. The pair, who are regular visitors in South Africa, were touched by the programmes at the centre. The facili­ tation of their visit was done by Pastor Mzuvukile Nikelo and facility officer Vusi Cekiso. Cekiso says Dulske and Huettner are very passionate about community de­ velopment. “Facility users and the com­ munity at large ululated, rejoicing in re­ ceiving the goods, and thanked them for their generosity and kindness,” says Cek­ iso. Photo: Vusi Cekiso

Special correspondent, Jay KirkfeldBoyes, can now reveal that the intention is that the 2013 Gay Pride Week will be held in Fish Hoek. In an exclusive interview with People’s Post, Kirkfeld-Boyes shared what he described as a “voorsmaakie”, to prepare the people of Fish Hoek for an opportunity of a lifetime – to support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community with open arms. Kirkfeld-Boyes says: “This year’s Cape Town Gay Pride was one of the best ever, as reflected in the thousands of happy faces parading through the streets of central Cape Town on Saturday 3 March. “Well done to every individual who joined in and made it so successful. This pink fanfair is very familiar to all people in the city centre and Cape Quarter each year. Streets were lined once again with a rainbow array of fans, participants, inquisitive onlookers and even critics (bless them!).”

He says the LGBTI community is once again proud to express themselves in a carnival celebration of their identity, in this wonderful, supportive city. “We love Cape Town,” he beams. Idriez Rinquest from Gay Pride Cape Town confirmed the news, but adds that a formal press release will be issued in due course. “It has been proposed that over the next few years, the Rainbow Peninsula shall host the Gay Pride as well, in rotation with the City centre. “Various centres have been identified, such as Strand and Fish Hoek. Consultations are already underway with various interested parties and forums for these areas. Feedback has been extremely fabulous so far,” says Rinquest. He believes there will be “unprecedented economic opportunities and benefits” for the Fish Hoek Valley during Gay Pride week next year, culminating in the street parade. “Among other things, guest houses will be overflowing with bookings and retailers will reap fabulous benefits as thousands of gay people and supporters converge on Fish Hoek during the one week period. “Various other activities will be planned in and about the valley during the course of the week, and the after party of course will

Pirates don’t wave flags TERESA FISCHER

RATES are masters of deception and escape. There are no skull and crossbone flags flying from their vessels’ mastheads. Commander Mbuyise Mfazi of the South African Navy explained pirates’ tactics during a thrilling

display of sea and air manoeuvres associated with combating piracy. The demonstration, held at sea on Thursday, was part of Exercise Good Hope V – the fifth bi-annual exercise between the German Armed Forces and the South African National Defence Force (SANDF). It commenced on Tuesday 6 March off the coast of Durban

CAPTURED: “Pirates” are captured on board the SAS AMATOLA.

and concluded on Friday in Simon’s Town. Mfazi says anti-piracy has advanced and multiple roleplayers, from places such as America and the United Kingdom, are involved. He adds that the pirates have advanced knowledge of the ships they attack. “They are always one step ahead,” he says. Pirates dupe cargo ships by pretending to be in distress

at sea or they clamber onboard using a high-speed boat to move between their larger ship and their victims. If they are captured, prosecution is challenging as pirates often claim asylum from the captain of the ship that has captured them. Mfazi says the navy is also compelled by international law to give food and water to vessels claiming

distress at sea. The aim of the exercise was to provide collective open water training for the German Bundeswehr and the SANDF in order to build interoperability and develop mutual understanding between the two forces, especially in the light of the increased threat of piracy on the East Coast of Africa.

Twitchers flock to see rare bird in Clovelly TERESA FISCHER

A LITTLE bird has been discovered at the Silvermine Wetland in Fish Hoek, and experts believe it is possibly the first of its kind recorded south of the Equator in Africa. Evanne Rothwell of Riverine Rovers says keen bird watcher Gillian Barnes first spotted a Little Crake late on Wednesday 21 March, and went back with her father, Eric Barnes, the next day. Chairperson of the South African Rarities Committee Trevor Hardaker says fortunately Barnes managed to get some photographs of the bird. She was, however, unsure of its identity, thinking it was perhaps a young Baillon’s Crake or perhaps even a Spotted Crake. Barnes’ pictures found their way

to Hardaker’s inbox and he says his interest was immediately aroused. He says the photos were not completely clear, but he quickly forwarded them to his expert team of friends – John Graham, Dr Peter Ryan, Phil Hockey and Cliff Dorse – who also suspected it was a Little Crake. Hardaker “dropped everything” and “raced” over to Clovelly, where he says they “found themselves face-to-face with a cracking Little Crake – a new bird for Southern Africa and quite possibly the first recorded south of the equator on this continent.” Twitchers streamed to the site, recently featured in People’s Post when a failure at the nearby pump station caused sewage to flood the wetland. On Friday, Hardaker reported that the bird was still “playing alone nicely” and that the first Gau-

teng twitchers have arrived. He adds: “For those that don’t know too much about this bird, it occurs in Europe, mainly in the east of the continent and just into western Asia. It migrates, to winter in northern Africa, generally only coming as far south as Ethiopia, although there are the odd records further south in Kenya. This is obviously a case of reverse migration where the bird has got its “built-in GPS” totally messed up and instead of heading north back to Eurasia, it has turned 180 degrees and headed due south. This often happens at this time of the year and it is one of the most exciting times for rarities, particularly in the Western Cape.” Robyn Kadis, a biodiversity monitor from Franschoek, was one of the twitchers who dropped everything to head to the site. She says by Friday the crowd had grown and

was reminiscent of the scenes in a new birding movie, The Big Year. Kadis adds: “How long she will stay is anyone’s guess and whether she will suddenly realise she has made a huge mistake, is also a

guess. Even if she does, will she make it home all the way to Europe or will she just stay put through our winter? Her survival is a bit precarious either way, I think. I sure hope she makes it.”

Those frozen moments GARETH GRIFFITHS

HANGING out the side of a helicopter taking photos for a client, or trying to get a steady picture from the window of a car while game spotting, you need to operate your camera at higher shutter speed. Most cameras have settings that allow control of exposure time or shutter speed. This is the length of time, in thousands of a second e.g. a common speed of 125 means one 125th of a second, or 1000 means one 1000th of a second. Do not confuse this with sensor or ISO speed, the direct analogy of film speed. They are however complementary. Advanced cameras allow the exposure to be directly set. Others, including basic digicams have a ‘fast’ or sports setting, to be used when you want to

freeze the action. Check yours out, often denoted by a running man icon. Use the “sports” setting when you want to freeze the action or at any time that you are shooting from an unsteady surface. An important tip is that when using this feature, lens focus becomes critical. Where possible, set your camera to focus in the centre of the field of view. High shutter speed generally means large aperture and low depth of field (more next time). If the subject is moving across your field of vision, it may be necessary to pan the action. This is when you gently swivel your body while holding the cam-

era steady, to keep the moving object in the centre of your lens. When this happens, the object remains in focus, while the background blurs - creating the effect of movement in the photo. This is the most basic lesson in sports photography. As with everything, there are other techniques available at a more advanced level. Visit my blog at www.ggphotoworld.blogspot.com for further info. Gareth Griffiths is a local professional photographer working in the media industry. Feel free to ask him questions by emailing to peoplespost.co.za or garethgriffiths.imaging@gmail.com.

Magic show probes psyche MASTER illusionist and sleight-ofhand whizz Stuart Lightbody is back to dazzle audiences at Kalk Bay Theatre, for five performances only, with his new show, Dark Imaginings. The show runs from Wednesday 28 to Saturday 31 March at 20:30 and on Sunday 1 April at 19:30. Lightbody is renowned for his “unique” approach to the art of magic. He blends comedy, magic, illusion and suspense, to create “an evening of fascination and entertainment”. A South African National Magic Champion, he won a Standard Bank

Silver Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival last year for his recent hit, Stuperstition, which sold out at Kalk Bay Theatre in October. In Dark Imaginings he explores the darker side of magic and illusion. “For psychologists the inkblot test reveals hidden thoughts and dark urges. In Dark Imaginings the entire audience gets to be part of the experiment... so, what will you see?” wonders Lightbody. Age restriction is 13. Tickets cost R85.

WE asked you who the most handsome officer featured in our front page photograph was, and the votes are in (“Pulling rank”, People’s Post, 20 March 2012). The consensus was that Commander Handsome Matsane was “definitely” the most good looking. Kevan Hearshaw writes: “He’s an impressive looking fellow. I can imagine him swinging through the rigging with a cutlass clamped between his teeth, á la Pirates of the Caribbean.” However, Admiral Koos Louw and Captain Andre de Wet both received a share of the votes. Patrick Donovan Rogers voted for an unexpected candidate. He writes: “Frankly, I think the most handsome looking guy in your front page picture, has to be the fella standing between the Admiral and the Commander.” (A man with his back to the camera) Rogers adds: “Admittedly, he has very small, beady eyes, and a rather undistinguished nose (although it is apparent if you look hard enough). But man! That mouth! And the hairy tongue! Wonder what he thinks of the Three Stooges in front of him?

Deadly diverse WHILE tens of thousands of Capetonians turned the Fanwalk into a scene redolent of New Year, devouring the festive sights and sounds of the Cape Town Carnival, elsewhere a man died a lonely death, at the hands of an incensed mob. Joy, energy, unity and a celebration of life marked the carnival, while despair and detachment heralded the end of life for a man who had been “necklaced” in Khayelitsha over the weekend. His burnt corpse, feet tied with rope, greeted police at 07:00 on Sunday. It appeared that the man was a victim of mob justice. Carnival of life and death on a dusty street - two vastly different worlds in one city. This is the stark contrast, the oxymoron, that characterises existence in a city as multi-cultural and diverse as ours. Most wouldn’t trade Cape Town, with its bounty of natural beauty, for any other place in the world, even when faced with the grim statistics and reality of crime. Some of us console ourselves with notions that “crime exists everywhere”. But hardly anyone could condone and justify something as barbaric as mob justice. Is it desperation or sheer criminality that fuel vigilantism? Would understanderstanding be harnessed by tapping into the psyche of communities permanently plagued by crime and violence? Does the rage that incites a mob to murder stem from abject conditions, a loss of faith and trust, in government, the criminal justice system? Justice must be seen to be done. The pendulum swings both ways; if those guilty of vigilantism justify their heinous actions as “an attempt to protect themselves”, let them not forget that they too have turned into criminals and murderers. There can be no justification for taking a life. We live in civilised society governed by rules and regulations, with access to resources and more importantly, the power of reasonable thinking.

Your SMSes Fighting injustice in the community AN informal group of local concerned citizens of the Southern Peninsula meet from time to time to discuss issues in our neighbourhood. The group includes residents from Marina da Gama, Lakeside, Simon’s Town, Ocean View, Masiphumelele and all places in between. We are not politically aligned but we are concerned about the deep inequalities that exist in our midst. On Saturday March 10, we invited two local refugees to speak about their country of origin, their hopes for the future and their experiences in South Africa.They had some words of praise for South Africa, but also strong criticism. Several issues stand out. •Corruption at the Maitland Home Affairs offices. For a R500 bribe, you get to the front of the queue. Officials who “hang around” the lines of waiting refugees arrange this. R500 is worth paying and better than standing for a whole day losing your wages or perhaps even your job. Also prowling the lines of refugees are some who pose as officials, take your money, and somewhere “around the corner” stamp your paper. Turns out the stamp was sold or stolen from Home Affairs. Then when the refugee finally makes it to the front of the queue, he/she is arrested for having a “cancelled” stamp. •Because refugees cannot have their qualifica-

tions recognised by regulatory bodies, some, even with South African university degrees, end up as spaza shop owners or unlicensed street traders. Given their education and skills they are often more successful than the locals they compete with. We were told how this becomes a profound reason for xenophobia. •Our refugee neighbours blamed SA’s porous border control as a further source of xenophobia. Chinese or Bangladesh citizens, for example, take over shops in Masiphumelele, Fish Hoek or elsewhere, yet these people are never seen in the Maitland centre where African refugees have to renew their papers every three months.What is going on? Should we not feel ashamed at the way we treat fellow Africans from countries that once provided refuge for thousands of South Africans? Why can’t Home Affairs get its house in order? The corruption at Home Affairs is everyone’s business; it touches us right here in our neighbourhood. Some suffer now, but eventually it will touch us all. Horst, Solveig, and Peter, for the neighbors. HORST KLEINSCHMIDT St James

. I would like to commend the South African Air Force for a sterling display of superior airmanship at this year’s Navy Festival. This is observed at every display by members of the SAAF. As for the Navy, I feel that there are a lot more skills that can be shared with the public. Diving the “Boat” in the outer basin was an excellent example. The dropping and recovery of divers from a chopper was also impressive. There was one thing that did not impress me at all; being forced to walk on a carpet of rubbish. The thought that we were hosting foreign Navies made me cringe with shame. Maybe I must just remind myself that this is Africa. Pat H . Well done to the organisers of the Navy Festival. I had a blast! . Dear Mr Glenn Ashton: “These people” remain anonymous because we do not want to become your next project. We have to work hard for our money. We are not of the privileged few who have all the time in the world and a trunk full of cash for legal proceedings while you find amusement creating and pursuing all your “causes”. Anonymous 2 . Hear hear, Christopher Stokes! It is clear that NEAG have zero interest in the opinions of the community. Shaun . Wiley is like all the rich – they think thy can do as they like and to hell with the rest as long as they get their way. . In the interest of open and honest public participation, please could friends of Noordhoek Farm Village “like” our Facebook page at www.noordhoekvillage.co.za! Your

comments will be appreciated. . Where was Mr Wiley on the night of 28 October 1979? Read Peter Stiff’s The Silent War and you will understand. Haldane . NEAG sounds like a bunch of naggers. Get out of town! Instead put your efforts into human-related problems in the area! . What many fail to understand is that Erf 453 belongs to Jeremy Wiley and family through The Old Cape Village Trust. This is neither public property nor a Public Open Space. . In response to the article about the railway police: This is absolutely ridiculous! People ride in between carriages, hang out of the doors and grip on the front of the train all the time! The railway police just want to take out their grudges on the whites. Who’s the racist now? From Train-rider . It seems that most of the comments about Da Gama Park are from disgruntled ex-Navy people who could not handle transformation. They seem to have taken the package and thought the grass was greener on the other side. Now they come to join the reserve force to get back in. Leave Da Gama Park out of it. DGP resident . Mr Engelbrecht, Catherine did not object to the church service but to the loud noise. My mother lives nearby and she has to listen to it from 7:00 on Sundays. Only deaf people won’t hear it. Show your respect by toning down. The whole Valley doesn’t want to hear. Monica

Keep it covered! A.P. JONES must advertise their seductively modelled lingerie elsewhere, not in your community paper where my impressionable young son may be unduly tempted and led astray.

Noisy council yard a real headache second section of vibracrete collapsed. Which was always to be expected as it was totally exposed to high winds. Regarding the canals at the back of Silverglade, if the City of Cape Town “works” for me, which seems to be a tag line only, then why, oh why, would I need to complain about the canals. Surely the City of Cape Town have them on some form of

maintenance programme. After all, the Parks people come and cut the grass without a complaint having to be filed. While on the subject of Silverglade, is it possible to get some clarity regarding the council yard. Having spoken to various neighbours, I would be interested to know which way vehicles are actually meant to leave the yard. While most of the drivers do finally seem to have

realised that there are residential houses opposite the yard, there are still a select few who practice unsocial behaviour. I personally have complained to both drivers and management at the yard about excessive noise. The worst two noise nuisance complaints being those drivers who feel the need to rev the engines of their vehicles when they first start them

in the morning for extended periods. The driver of a bulldozer revs his engine for a good 10 minutes every morning. Then there are those who feel the need to start hooting to get the attention of the security guard as they turn the corner at the top of the road, this is also usually after hours. I, and I’m sure my neighbours as well, would appreciate it if those departments that use the yard could be reminded that they do border on a residential area. TRISH DONMALL

With regard to the irrigation system that was damaged at the informal trading area on Ou Kaapse Weg extension: While I will agree it was destroyed, I do believe it happened when the vibracrete wall first started to collapse and was exposed for a lengthy time – the first section of the fence was left lying around for a long time.

Put aside your egos brilliance, Jeremy Wiley has created an extremely popular venue, enjoyed by the vast majority of Noordhoek residents and providing more income for locals than NEAG could possibly dream of. And the so-called public open space has been put to better use than ever before as a parking lot. NEAG, gloating over their recent court “victory”, are happy to insist on its return to its previous state. The true requirements of the majority

of the community are ignored while the principles of a few self-serving, selfappointed committee members hold sway. I vote we close down NEAG and open the parking lot permanently, before someone is injured in a traffic accident. And while we’re about it, let’s fine Jeremy and apply the proceeds to fund car guards and other useful citizens. ROB GLENISTER Noordhoek

Lost without glasses JUST wondering whether anyone has found my glasses? They fell out of my motorbike box on Thursday after-

noon 15 March at approximately 15:15. This was in the motorbike parking section at Longbeach Mall.

BLOWING ANOTHER TRUMPET: Mike Oldham writes: “The three Naval Officers you featured can­ not possibly compare to the amazingly handsome youth who led the Navy Parade with his five lovely ladies, all members of the Izivunguvungu Youth Band. Recently back from Germany where he also dazzled the Frauleins, Byron Delcarme is the solo trombonist and assistant brass teacher of this 62­piece marching band.” Oldham adds that Delcarme was one of the original pupils of the Izivunguvungu Music Project, which now has fans in Germany, the Netherlands and Canada after featuring in the DVD of Musikschau Der Nationen 2012. “We do, however, give a vote to Admiral Koos Louw as the second most handsome in the Parade, he being the driving force behind the existence of Izivunguvungu.

Swim for cancer patient A CAPE TOWN man has swum from Big Bay to Robben Island and back in order to help a young cancer patient pay her medical bills

year that kept me going,” said Enderli. The “Swim of Courage” is an initiative that was started by Martin Goodman to raise funds for children suffering from cancer. However, it was Enderli’s idea to “sell” each of the 12 000 strokes for R20 each in order to raise R240 000 towards Cohen’s treatment Cohen, 11, was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of bone cancer known as a Chordoma in January last year. Because she could not be treated in South Africa, her parents were forced to take her to Boston to undergo aggressive and lifesaving surgery and extensive proton radiation treatment. Donations can still be made and Enderli has encouraged everyone to take this small step in making a massive difference to a child’s life. For more information, contact Enderli at toni@enderli.co.za.

Toni Enderli completed the 15 kilometre “Swim of Courage” in five hours and four minutes on Wednesday last week. The Tableview estate agent says that while the cold water temperature – less than 12,7° C – was difficult to handle, the toughest part of the swim was the strong current just off Robben Island. “It was like hitting a wall but it gave me time to reflect on why I was doing this – and spurred me on to complete the course” said Enderli. “The fact that it was Human Right’s Day made it all the more appropriate. Cancer affects so many people and we all deserve a quality life – this swim is helping 11-year-old Natalie Cohen’s family pay her medical bills but also raising awareness of cancer in children.” According to Enderli, the current kept him static for around 15 minutes during the swim. Enderli planned the swim more than three months ago, in order to raise funds for cancer patient Natalie, but the unsuitable weather conditions kept delaying him. Although the water temperatures on the day were still lower than recommended for this type of swim, Enderli went ahead and set off from Big Bay at 08:45. “It was the thought of Natalie and the courage that she and her family have shown over the last

Underdogs surprise big guns LIAM MOSES

T

HE final day of play at the annual Strandfontein Under 13 tournament had several surprises in store for players and spectators as several of the biggest teams were knocked out. The tournament, now in its thirteenth year, brings together 24 of the best junior teams from around Cape Town to compete against one another for the three titles on offer. The competition’s innovative format sees the teams divided into eight groups of three teams each, with the winners, runners-up and last-placed sides in the groups all advancing to different knock-out stages labelled as the championship, plate and shield respectively. This year, some of Cape Town’s biggest football teams sent their U13 sides to compete in the tournament, and the line-up included Mr Price Parkhurst Academy and Old Mutual Academy, as well as Cape Town’s two Premier Soccer League clubs, Ajax and Santos. However, none of the big sides were able to advance beyond the semi-final stages of the any of the three streams. Fish Hoek Football Club was one of the tournaments surprise packages as they made it all the way

to the championship final, before faltering at the last step. The team qualified for the championship section after beating the Stephanians 2-0 and thrashing Red Rovers 4-0 in their two groupstage matches. But the team’s most impressive results came in the knock-out stages of the competition, where they eliminated two of the tournament’s heavy-hitters. Old Mutual Academy, based in Pinelands, were the first to be despatched when they lost 3-2 on penalties after the match finished in a 1-1 draw, and Mr Price Parkhurst Academy from Westridge were sent packing in a 2-1 defeat in the semi-finals. However, Fish Hoek received a taste of their own medicine in the final as Lucky Stars of Gugulethu recorded a 5-1 victory to walk away with the title. The Gugulethu side won their two group matches 6-0 and 7-1 in the first round, and defeated Ajax Cape Town 3-0 in the semi-finals on their way to the final. In the plate final, for teams who finished second in their groups, Strandfontein, the tournament hosts, beat Rygersdal 6-2. CPUT beat Crusaders 4-3 in the final of the shield section, for teams who finished third in their groups. The top goal-scorer at the tournament was Courtney Williams of Ajax Cape Town, who scored seven goals in his side’s four matches.

OUT OF REACH: The Fish Hoek FC goalkeeper unsuccesfully attempts to keep out a shot from a Lucky Stars player during the final of the Strandfontein U13 tournament on Sunday.
