Exactly thirty years ago [on 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 an accounting graduate and pursuing a successful career in fashion design in London and currently diving in the Maldives with husband Mike. A year ago she and Mike, her dad and family paddled the unique Camino Kayak Tour in Spain which Loots originally identified as a kayak route and which is now entering it's 4th successful season under the ownership of Retha and Carlos Blanco-Lopez. This coming weekend Johan and Teresa Loots will host Getaway and run their own new 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 since that fateful day in 1988 the new tour is seen to be at once a celebration of life and adventure and a time to reflect as well as tribute to those loved and remembered.
