Im planning a possible trip to Cape Town, South Africa in spring 2013.
When is the main season?
Wetsuit nessesary all year arround?
What is the distance between Cape Town and Langebaahn?
It is summer in december/january/frebruary/march.
And yes, a wetsuit of some kind will be necessary - shorts only is possible, but not for long
If you go when its summer (around february), bring a summer shorty (short arms and/or legs) and an allround suit (3/2mm) for the evenings with low sun where it is not as warm, and more wind (it picks up during the day starting before noon and maxes late in the evening)
Many of us here in DK go to Capetown every year around jan/feb.
Around 100km to Langebaan only.
Shorts and a thin top works fine quite often
