Hi,
Which site/beach on Winguru do you use to see the wind conditions for next weeks Round the Cape Challenge. Thanks in advance.

Use Windguru - Cape Point and magicseaweed Muizenberg
Both will give you an idea. Currently the swell is looking big and a Southerly wind will give a headbutt to the point (nowhere to hide) and due to swell size add 2 km as you give the various points a wide berth!
See you there!

Going double - taking a really strong guy for his first Cape Point - hope we go round the Point rather than an out and back.Fun race and great party - though getting a bit old for a big bash!
We have done the training so it should be fun
