This event is a race in that you start at the start, follow a course and finish at the finish. But it isn’t as much a ‘race’ as an opportunity for you to dust off your kayak (any type of kayak!) and to come and paddle it.

Paddling Race is for everyone – young, old, fit, unfit, beginner and experienced kayaker. There are two course distances to choose from, marshals on the water to guide you and our lovely venue at the Likkewaan Canoe Club.

You need little more than a kayak, paddle and PFD (and we do have some rental kayaks available too). It doesn’t matter whether your kayak is old or new, short or long, sleek or squat, plastic or fibreglass. Come and experience this beautiful section of the Vaal River with its vegetated islands and abundant bird life.
