“Cape Town summer is a very welcoming event,” says TV personality Colin Moss. He continues, “as I am originally from Durban, we don't really experience the winter. The Spring Dip was awesome! What a way to celebrate summer after such a long winter.”

Lee Downs and the Bokomo Heart Breakfast team arrived at Eden on the Bay before the crack of dawn for a special broadcast live from the beach. Joe Pietersen, Stormers rugby personality was the first to arrive braving the cold and the early hours of the day. The Lifesaving Western Province Club joined in the dip and provided all participating in the event with the necessary safety measures in place. WaterWise representatives further staged life saving demonstration and WaterWise simulated a life saving Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in cases of emergency.

Chester Williams, ex-Springbok and TV commentator also participated in the Dip. Asked about his experience he says, “The water was actually much warmer than I expected. It was great to see the high turnout and it was great to spend some time with Rob Louw, ex Springbok and his daughter Roxy Louw along with fullback Conrad Jantjes. Life saving clubs should be supported as we never know when we might need a lifesaver.”

Beryl Georges, provincial secretary of Lifesaving Western Province made an appeal to all beach goers not consume alcohol at the beaches. “They present a danger to both themselves and any lifeguard that might need to save them. Always swim between the flags as per the lifeguard's instructions and never swim alone. Children should always be under adult supervision,” she added.

For general enquiries please contact 021 715 6679 to find out which club patrols the beach in your area.
