Learn to Dive Today supports the Anchor Challenge

On Saturday 11 December, the Mr Price Anchor Challenge will bring some mayhem to Fish Hoek! This is a multi-event (running, swimming, cycling, paddling) sports challenge that is unlike a triathlon in that there is time between legs to regroup, rest and prepare for the next event.

Learn to Dive Today has donated two Discover Scuba Diving experiences to be used as lucky draw prizes, or spot prizes for event winners. The proceeds of this event are being donated to several worthy charities, and we are proud to be associated!

Come and say hello at the registration expo on Friday 10 December from 1600 to 2100 at the Valley Christian Church on the first floor of the OK Furniture Building on the corner of Main and De Waal roads in Fish Hoek (opposite Shoprite).

We’ll also be out and about on Fish Hoek beach on race day (Saturday 11 December). Look out for the divemobile and the Learn to Dive Today signage.

The race routes can be found here. With particular reference to the swim leg, the organisers state the following with reference to potential shark activity in Fish Hoek:

The swim leg will be held in a compact triangle shape that will be bordered by 30 shark shield devices, lifeguards and safety boats.  Then, the high activity in the water because of all the swimmers and boats will act as a further deterrent.  The swim will also be held at a time of day when there is the least marine activity.  Finally the shark watch program will be operating and we will not run the swim leg should there be any question as to the safety of competitors.
