Sanlam Cape Mile - open water swimming in the countryside

Two of our young swimmers from Masakhane participated in the 500m open water swim at the Sanlam Cape Mile event held at the Eikenhof Dam in Grabouw on 17 February. This was Afika Adonis and Maxhosandisile Ngcashe’s very first open water swim and they loved it! Maxhosandisile only learnt to swim 12 months ago – an astonishing achievement.

Coaches Natasha Bredekamp and Shereen van der Merwe, along with Green Futures College Head, Susan Lochner, and our very own Managing Director, Julie Cheetham, also participated in the brisk Sunday morning swim, finishing with huge smiles on their faces. Well done to all who set such a great example!
