SurfSki Record Attemps & Fundraiser

Monday 10th January, DUC members, Brett Hadairis and Quinton Rutherford will be attempting to break 2 world records simultaneously in a double surf ski, one being for the longest distance in a 24hr period and the other being the fastest 100 sea nautical miles.

Brett and Quintons’ mission is not just the glory of beating records but also to raise awareness and funds for children afflicted with Leukaemia as, Farren Grace, the 6-year-old daughter of Luke and Kate, is being treated for Leukaemia. 

Besides sponsorship of the record attempt, funds will also be raised by selling raffle tickets for a double carbon Fenn elite worth R35000. Tickets are R500 each and are available from Dave Harker 083 287 8800. The lucky draw will be held at PWC the week after the attempt.

The current fairly strong easterly winds expected on Monday are the ideal weather conditions to attempt this feat but it may also be a painful one, not just from the effort involved but with the bluebottles around as well at the moment. The starting point will be Sodwana Bay and the end will be at The Point Water Sports Club, Vetchs beach, Durban.

Brett and Quinton are expecting to arrive at PWC between 6pm and 8pm. A reminder that the club will be open for dinner on Monday if you would like to show your support for the cause by being at the club to greet them on their arrival.
