Braaing the wors underwater

An underwater braai? Yes please!

I recently spent an eventful couple of days, just before Heritage Day (or National Braai Day, as Jan Braai has christened 24 September), helping Mr Braai himself with his efforts to build a fire underwater and have a barbecue. You may have seen the broadcast on Kyknet last night! Seahorse was chartered for surface support work, and we supplied a couple of divers to the in-water support team, too. Here’s the official Jan Braai video for the event:

I don’t have time for a detailed post right now, but to further whet your appetite (ha ha) here’s an insert produced by Die Burger newspaper (in Afrikaans):

There is a press article about the event here (in Afrikaans) and here, in English. It was a completely harebrained yet brilliant scheme that succeeded against all odds. I had a fantastic time at the trial run at Miller’s Point and the actual event in Hout Bay, and received outstanding assistance from Craig, Christo and Mark.
