Sun, Sand and Shade

Freeform® Stretch Tent Rentals covers SA's lifesaving Champs 2017 Event at Camps Bay Beach, Cape Town

Beautiful Camps Bay on the Atlantic Seaboard played host to this epic 4 day event.

SA Life Saving Championships is an annual event where South Africa’s top life savers pit their skills, strength and endurance against one another over an epic 4 days. This year the event was hosted by Clifton Surf Lifesaving on the trendy beach of Camps Bay – a blue flag status beach in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. The event saw over 600 hundred competitors take part while hundreds more descended the beach over the 4 days to enjoy the fun, sun and watch these life-saving heroes battle it out in the water.

In true Cape style, the South Easter howled on the evening of the set up but with 8 experienced riggers Freeform® had 5 tents up (10mx12m – 10mx15m – 18mx25m – Octobar 380m2 – F-600m2) in under just 8 hours using 1.2m pegs and special pegging plates to ensure a secure rig in the sand for the duration of the event.

A surprise high tide caused a little havoc on the first day making only half of the main tent usable but Freeform® were quick to the rescue, supplying and rigging a 18×15 modular stretch tent a little higher up on the beach to accommodate the rising waters.

As temperatures soared over the 4 days – our tents provided a welcome respite from the sun for competitors and spectators alike.

What an epic 4 days! What a set-up! We think our tents did this prestigious event proud!

The circular tent pictured here, shows our F600 Octabar 380 in action. The Octabar 380 is a 21,5m x 21,5m circular tent with 8 entrances. The entrances can be closed with see-thru sidewalls for added weather protection, privacy, or security as needed. This tent was rigged for the competitors themselves as a space for team meetings, equipment storage etc. A standard modular stretch tent 10m x 12m was rigged canopy-style, alongside the F600 Octabar, for maximum visibility for the event officials and judges.
