Sunday 17 September - Sandy Bay to Oudeschip


Sorry for the late post about this weekends hike, but it is still a go, I repeat, it is still a go! Over!

Due to the huuuuuuge activities on Sat with the Table Mountain Challenge this weekends hike is going to be a fairly chilled one, with very little, if any, gradient.

However I am informed that it is truly beautiful hike.

Where: Sandy Bay to Oude Schip.

When: 9am Sunday morning

FLA's (Four Legged Athlete's): Welcome.

Weather: It's meant to be sunny and clear, fingers crossed.

Clothes: Optional for a stretch across the back of Sandy Bay.

Bring: Warm top, water, sweets, suncream (becoming increasingly more important as summer draws near), tea, coffee etc!

Time: 2-2.5 hours, depending on VAVT (View Appreciation Vibe Time)

Directions: "Leaving the coastal Road between Hout Bay and Camps Bay, turn down the road to Llandudno. After 600m you will come to a sharp bend to the right. At this point continue straight along Fisherman's Bend Road. After negotiating six speed bumps, turn right into Sandy Bay Road. Then follow the sign posts to Sandy Bay all the way down Sunset Avenue almost to the bottom. On the last sharp bend there is a parking area. That's where the vibe will begin!"

Awesome. Amped for the weekends activities. Hope to see some of you along the way tomorrow.

Update on the hike, the very last little section of the hike is only possible at low tide. Low tide on Sunday is at 6:37am and high tide at 12:54pm. I would estimate that we will be there at about 10:00-10:15, so we will have to make a call when we get there, keeping in mind that the tide will be rising. Either way, we still get most of the way out there.

Thanks to Erica for the heads up!
