Listen in your car whilst on your way home to the Gold Mines:
www.MyPE.co.za: The number of incidents involving Kydaars and water at this time of the year is frightening. (A Kydaar is a sub species of the Afrikaans nation that walks along the beach and says; “Kyk Daar, kyk daar en ky daar en kydaar”)
I hereby propose a deal with our Northern cousins – we won’t come up to the wilds of Gauteng and explore your gold mines if you agree to not come down to our beaches and buy high powered vessels that you clearly have no idea of piloting or continue to ‘go to sea’ on various floating contraptions in a howling off shore wind. Our dams are not round and there is no land within a couple of hours over the horizon – promise!
Read on for more Darwin Reports from our Kydaar friends from up north:
On the 26th at around 12h58, NSRI St Francis Bay responded to Jeffries Bay following reports of a rubber-duck capsized in the surf with 5 persons on-board.
On arrival on-scene all 5 people, all from Johannesburg, were found safely ashore and not injured.
It appears the boat had capsized while returning through the surf to the beach.
At 18h50, NSRI St Francis Bay volunteers responded to off-shore of St Francis Bay, in the vicinity of the water tower, following eye-witness reports of a red distress flare deployed at sea.
An extensive sea and shore search, until midnight, revealed no sign of anyone in difficulty and by the morning of the 27th no reports of anyone overdue or missing had been received.
The red distress flare activation is being treated as suspicious.
On the morning of the 27th, at around 06h30, a ski-boat with 7 people onboard, all from Johannesburg, capsized in the surf while launching to go to sea at Jeffries Bay.
On the NSRI St Francis Bay’s arrival on-scene all 7 persons were found safely ashore and not injured and their boat was recovered.
Just remember; “Money may but you a boat, but, money does not buy BRAINS!” Now, please pack your bags and go meekly back to the Gold Mines.
