Local witnessed French rugby team boat capsized

Mood to moment !

French touring team players were rocked early this morning on the 19th June during a sunrise boat dive outing at Rocky bay when a freak wave scrummed their boat and players onto the rocks.

Eventually all swam back to shore safely during the 1st half without any injuries or sea concussion incidents. They all seemed to be in awe due to this incident but never the less had a halftime “ lemoen tyd “ session on the beach at half-time..  The same French team touring members attempted a second dive session with a 2nd boat outing and this boat decided to capsize in the waves as-well  forcing the team members to carry out some strenuous swimming exercises back to shore whilst a few were rescued by the sharks board boat in the immediate vicinity before this coming Saturdays final test at Coca-Cola park in Johannesburg. Fortunately no injuries occurred but a very bad experience for the team members before this weekends final test between the Bokke and touring French team.  Asking a few team members if they would attempt a 3 rd  dive outing they said that they would rather attempt to do soul enriching and character building  along the Kzn shore line in order to revitalize their strength for Saturdays epic final test.

Witnessed by a vivid great outdoor camper of the early morning sunrises at Rocky Bay. Graham Clouston. MBB out of Africa.
