Epic achievement for Rotarians

The Rotary Club of Hermanus has won an epic award, not only for the organisation but also for the town of Hermanus.

Its entry in the Absa Cape Epic Fly Over competition bowled judges out, bagging them the title as winners.

“It is simply amazing!” said Hermanus Rotary president Ann Wright.

The idea behind their display on Rotary Drive, says Anne, was to keep it “simple and special”. To this effect they chose to paint the Rotary Wheel on Rotary Drive. “The Rotary Wheel represents our organisation which is an international organisation while at the same time displaying a link to cycling. It really was a no-brainer to incorporate all of that,” Wright explained.

Frieda Lloyd, Cape Whale Coast Tourism manager, said this achievement is of great value to the region. “It has great promotional value – the images are broadcast across the world and show how our community becomes involved in events.” She congratulated the Rotary Club on the achievement and thanked them for their hard work in creating the display at the top of Rotary Drive.

The competition entails creating an object large enough to be photographed from the air. Each town invites organisations and schools to form such a display to add to the gees and festivities surrounding this annual epic international mountain biking race. This is the second time that Hermanus has won this competition. In 2017 Hermanus High’s formation of a waving whale tail also scooped the prize.
