WATUNI KLIP RIVER RACE – SATURDAY 19 AUGUST 2017
Please find herewith details regarding the Watuni race which will be held on the Klip on 19 August…..as it is not flat water, there will be a river point available for those in need!!
The race will go upstream from Makery and turn around, to paddle down.
This is to spread the field so there is less congestion at the Henley Weir parking/crossing portage…..for safety purposes, and to help improve stamina with upstream workout, as well as to lengthen the race for training purposes.
