Videos of talks from the FEAT event in Jo’burg on Thursday, 4 October 2012

Elsie Bezuidenhout

A systems analyst by trade, Elsie Bezuidenhout has imagined herself on the summit of Everest since she was under a meter tall. Her mountain journey started with Kilimanjaro at the turn of the millennium. She then notched Aconcagua and Elbrus in 2005 and, just as there are seven days in a week, she thought it would be cool to join the Seven Summits queue – only Everest remains. [more]

Keith ventured overseas for six months in 1984, returning to South Africa 13 years later. Whilst living in landlocked Brussels, he bought a boat and in spite of qualifying as a Yachtmaster managed a dismasting in the Caribbean, blew his engine in the Patagonia canals and again in the Falklands and set a record for the slowest crossing of the Southern Ocean (seven weeks).
