The Vaal River was flowing nicely this weekend.

Not a bike RR, saarrrrry!  ;)  Every waking moment I currently have is spent in a Canoe!

Pics from the Likkewaan Race this weekend, I completed in a modest 2h 10min.  :)

We in the red one side and blue the other side boat, I have a white shirt on, right in the middle of the pic.  8)

Nice one.

So are you coming down to KZN to do the Duzi?

i am paddling with my 14 year old son after an 8 year break, really enjoying being back in the boat.
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Seeing that canoe, and those serious oars you need for propulsion, and the boeps you have to propel.....makes me soooooo happy I have a power boat.... :biggrin:
Well done JohnST... :thumleft:
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

i ventured on flat water in a K2 2 weeks ago. i must tell you, it really is quite daunting, balancing that thing.
having an impaired sense of balance from the night before probably did not help.

Well done.

K2 is much easier balance wise then a K1. Promise!!  You must try a boat like a Sabre, man they are unstable!!  ;)

But thanks, I was chuffed seeing it was my first race.
