South Africa - Sep 04 to Apr 05
We decided to avoid another cold European winter for the 2004/2005 period and head down to Cape Town for the South African summer instead. Cape Town offers many possiblities, and due to the exchange rate - very reasonable prices!

A weekend trip to Durban to visit my grandfather and also to dive Protea Banks to see the sharks. We saw a few big hammerhead and zambezi (bull) sharks, but they were to prove illusive when we tried to photograph them.

A trip to visit a property owned by some friends of ours - Paul and Lindsay. While there we did a quick search and recovery dive to see if we could recover some canoes lost many years ago. Nothing was found...

Jetskiing  |  Total images: 16  |  Date added: 29.01.2005
Jetskiing was just one of those things that had to be done while we were in Cape Town. My cousin Keith came to visit, and the ocean was very flat one day so we decided on the spur of the moment to take them for a spin. Needless to say a lot of fun was had by all!

I decided to complete an AFF (accelerated Freefall) course. It was 1 static line jump and 10 free fall jumps from 9000-11000 feet. Jumps 1-3 were with 2 instructors, jumps 4-7 were with 1 instructor, jumps 8-10 were solo. Please note the videos from jumps 6 and 7 are the better ones.
