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!
