Day 7 was another winner day for Devon and Jurie. The river was kind and they pushed hard. Covering a further 57km. This puts them roughly 95 km from the finish at Tella Bridge (A2) over the Senqu river. The hope is that they will be finished early Christmas afternoon. Their current pace has them almost a day and a half ahead of schedule, with the finished planed to leave them with 2 days to spare. Several big rivers enter the lower end of the Senqu, these greatly bolstering flow.
Day 8 see’s the guys put in a 48 or more km leg with the objective to, as always, cover as much ground as possible. If they can cover 48 or more kilometres today, they should be able to finish by tomorrow afternoon. Which would see them finish 2 days ahead of schedule. So hopefully Christmas party at the Tella Bridge border. Thankfully the closing time has been extended for the 24th and 25th, so we can still exit if we run late.
