Guinness World Record for the highest number of riders on a single wave at Muizenberg

South African surfers take to the water in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the highest number of riders on a single wave at Muizenberg in Cape Town, September 2, 2007. The surfers posted an unoficial tally of 71 riders standing on a single wave for more than five seconds, easily surpassing the official record of 44. This total, however, still has to be ratified by the body, as does the 73 recorded at the same venue last year.

Cape Town, July 28 2000. The birds were among thousands of penguins rescued
in a mass evacuation after an ore carrier sank recently close to their
breeding grounds on islands north west of Cape Town. Conservation groups and
volunteers have been feeding and cleaning the birds in a converted warehouse
in the city. NO RIGHTS CLEARANCES OR PERMISSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS IMAGE REUTERS/MIKE HUTCHINGS MH/WS

Loss of the HMS Birkenhead Featured Cape Town Image

Loss of the HMS Birkenhead

"Vintage engraving from 1878 showing the loss of the Birkenhead. The Birkenhead was an iron paddle steamer of 1400 tons, and was launched in December 1845. On 26 February 1852, while transporting troops to Algoa Bay, she was wrecked at Danger Point near Gansbaai on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa. There were not enough serviceable lifeboats for all the passengers, and the soldiers famously stood firm, thereby allowing the women and children to board the boats safely. Only 193 of the 643 people on board survived."
