South-Easter destroyed the bivouac. After two poles snapped in the big tent we had to evacuate. Andy and John into the back of Jan's pickup and the rest of us on the back of the 16 bike trailer. Amageza aint for sissies! - Alexander

Update to all entrants & spectators...
The bivouac in Gordons Bay is moving due to weather conditions.
All entrants to assembly at the Hendon Park Resort this morning, as early as possible. There will be a team waiting with the route to the new bivouac site for tonight.

The map/directions to the new bivouac for today:

From Alex:
"Wind is blowing us a way. We've tied the tents to the vehicles. If you don't see us at 09:00, call Sea Rescue. We might be half way to Simon's Town!"   :imaposer:

Gordons Bay was a blast (no pun intended)

At the scrutineering now, near Grabouw.
Some lovely machines here & the spirits are high  ;D
