Robyn Loots [nee Lowe] remembered. (13/6/2018)
Exactly thirty years ago [28 May 1988, Robyn and Johan Loots were training for the Berg River Marathon on a fine autumn afternoon when disaster struck near Olyfboom, Wellington, and Robyn, sadly, was lost. She was the leading WP Lady K1 paddler at the time. On the banks were daughter Frances, just turned 2, waiting for her mom and dad to wrap up their training for the day. Thirty years on, Frances is pursuing a successful career in Fashion Design in London and currently diving in the Maldives with husband Mike. A year ago she and her dad and new family paddled the unique Camino Kayak Tour in Spain which Loots originally identified as a kayak route crying out to be run and which is now entering it's 4th successful season under the ownership of Retha and Carlos Lopez. This coming weekend Johan and Teresa Loots will host Getaway and run their own Cape Kayak Camino Tour on the magnificent Plettenberg Bay Lagoon in South Africa's and the Western Cape's Garden Route, including the Bitou Estuary and the majestic Keurbooms Gorge. Having continued paddling since that fateful day in 1988 the latter tour according to Loots is at once a celebration of life and adventure as well as a time to reflect and a tribute to those we love and remember.
