Some more news on the Vaal.
All paddlers will be receiving something to eat at the end of each day.
There is also a new overnight stop at Smilin Thru Resort. They have kindly
offered a discount on their accommodation rates to all paddlers and their
seconds/families on condition that you buy a meal voucher for the evening.
Day 1 will start at the Barrage and end 35km later at Smilin Thru Resort,
and Day 2 will start at Smilin Thru Resort and Finish at Hadeda Creek
Adventures 29km later.
We have confirmed a water release for the race, but not sure how much it
will be exactly.
The Vaal River Canoe Marathon is a B grade race this year, so for those of
you still building up your index for Dusi next year this is the perfect
opportunity to do so.
The rest of you will most definitely enjoy the lower section of the Vaal
River, lots of channels and islands to negotiate and plenty of exciting
rapids to make racing a lot more interesting.
Remember only the first 100 entrants receive a goody bag so get your
entries in as soon as possible.
Race entries are open on the GCU website:
Please make sure you select Vaal on the dropdown menu, also ensure that you
select either the single day or the two day event at the Vaal depending on
what you would like to do.
