  1. A 20-minute drive north along the R27, or West Coast road as it's more commonly known, is all it takes for you to be whisked from the Cape Town city centre to a drop zone that boasts one of the best views in the world from altitude. To the south, the Mother City lies sandwiched between towering Table Mountain and bustling Table Bay harbour. Further to the south and to the far side of the mountain from where you are, lies False Bay, Hout Bay and the splendour of the South Peninsula as far as Cape Point. Due west, you will spot Robben Island - Cape Town's own Alcatraz - and the beautiful Cape West Coast, as famous for its icy seawater as its mouthwatering crayfish. To the north, the Langebaan lagoon , a great windsurfing venue.
  2. This is a request for anyone who can help us! http://www.news24.com/News24/South_Africa/WesternCape/0,1113,2-7-830_1172124,00.html For many people the night of the 22nd of April, was a lifelong dream turned into a nightmare. At about 3’o clock the morning, a fire raged through the hangars of Skydive Cape Town, a local parachuting club in South Africa. As you can imagine this devastating incident has caused heartbreak to Peter Mauchen, Ronel Horne and Anton Scalabrino, the three owners of the club who have invested their life savings into this operation, not to mention the fifteen others who rely on the club for their income. As you can see by the article below, all the equipment and two planes were destroyed in the fire making it impossible for them to continue running the business. Although there was insurance, this has proved insufficient to cover the replacement cost of all the equipment. What the have lost: 11 Vector Tandem Rigs 12 Student Rigs Cessna 206 Cessna 182 Video Equipment A lot of privately owned rigs of members. The whole hangar I am sending this letter as an appeal to anyone out there who can help by donating either moneys, equipment or just lend a hand in the clean-up operation to help these unfortunate people to get back on their feet and help to rebuild the dream. Should you wish to contribute in any way, please contact either myself ([email protected]) or Peter Mauchen ([email protected]) Kind Regards, Japie Muller (member)
