Forget the rather windless 2007 season, 2008 is looking like a windy one with the south-easter howling down Table Mountain with ferocious consistency!

Plus the beaches are apparently less crowded than last year which can only be a good thing unless you think that increases your chances of being eaten!

So why not push that credit card to it\'s limits? Flights can still be found for £500 going the end of January with South African Airways and it\'s cheap as chips once you get there.

If not, then gaze at the following sailors\' websites which have regular updates on the conditions and get saving for next season.
