The day began with mist covering the coastline like a woolly blanket. Teams gathered at Doring Baai, where they would commence their first Leg of Expedition Africa 2018.
Trekking 19km along the coastline, making their way through Marshland and crossing a lagoon to check in at Transition 1 around 11:20.
Leg 2: A 50km Kayak up river, against the current. Team A2A struggled to gain momentum and fell back a few places. They arrived safely at Transition 2 around 22:00 where they stocked up on Nutrition packs and filled their Water bottles and off they went on with Leg 3 – a 37km Trek.
Team mentioned the usual aches and pains from racing: Sore/ tired feet, aching shoulders, wet & cold.
Still they venture on!
