  • EA 2018 : Registration day

    After a good nights sleep and a well deserved breakfast at Letsatsi Lodge's Red Ox Steak House, the teams made their way to registration and compulsory equipment check. Namaqua west coast will offer up a challenging route with very limited access to food, water and outside help. It is extremely important that they carry with them all necessary equipment and be self sufficient between transitions. The teams also took part in the traditional flag parade which lead them down the main street through Van Rhyns Dorp and back into Letsatsi lodge. The evening ended off with a traditional "Braai" prepared by Namaqua West Coast Tourism.
