I just spoke to a friend in Cape Town, Angus from Cape Dr. He told me that there is a plan to build a hovercraft link all across the table bay, in which most kite- and windsurfing is going on and some surfing, too. The hovercraft would be running close to the shore (about 1km), and would seriously impact that brilliant surfing area. Noise, danger from the hover craft, etc.
All sorts of people are protesting, from surfers to residents and environmental agencies. It would be great if you could support the protest with a simple email.
Please write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the subject line "Hovercraft protest" and a few lines describing why you are against it and may be that it could impact your decision to go kiting in Cape Town.
Goose (=Angus) will then collect all those emails, print them out and take them to the next council meeting, to give the voice of protest against this project more weight.
