Eleven months after donating 10 billion litres of water to the Cape Town water supply, and with just-over one month to go to the 5th annual Sanlam Cape Mile, the water level at the Eikenhof Dam sits at a healthy 70%.

“At the beginning of 2018 Day Zero was a real concern,” admits Michael Meyer, MD at Stillwater Sports. “However, at just under 40% in February, the dam level was still high enough for us to host a safe and fun-filled event in 2018.”

According to Willie Landman, GM at the Elgin Grabouw Country Club, at the end of February 2018 the dam level was at 38.94%, compared to 58.20% in 2017. “If the irrigation schedule goes according to plan in 2019, the Eikenhof dam levels should be approximately 55% to 65% in February. This is great news for the Sanlam Cape Mile, a fantastic event that is great for both the local community and tourism.”

Celebrating its 5th anniversary on Sunday, 17 February 2019 at the Eikenhof Dam at the Elgin-Grabouw Country Club, the Western Cape’s premier open water swim will offer competitors two race distances: a 1 mile (1.6km) and a refreshing 500m swim. Visit www.stillwatersports.com for more info or to enter.
