The rain held off overnight and Batch D, Mike, Casper, Tim, Robbie and Alex all left Rhodes looking determined. They are making good progress towards Chesneywold, except for Robbie, who has now backed off, complaining of a tight chest – he will stop at Chesneywold to reassess.
Ahead of them are Theo, Colin, Gavin and Henry (Batch C), who are now making their way off the Slaapkrantz portage and heading for a muddy Bontehoek portage undeterred.
Anthony (Batch C) is ahead of them, he left Moordenaaarspoort this morning and is closing in on Kranskop support station.
Then we have most of Batch B, Annie, Stewart, Craig, Leon and Fiona, who left Kranskop before first light and are on their way to Brosterlea, after which they will be heading for Romansfontein.
Out front we have Carl and Coen, who left with Batch A from Romansfontein this morning. They all got a bit lost going over Aasvoelberg portage but are now back on track and heading to Hofmey – the pie shop closes at 13h00 on a Sunday but they should make it with time to spare and then head on to Elandsberg.
