South Africa’s Top River Marathon paddlers will battle it out at this year’s Hansa Fish River Canoe Marathon which takes place in Cradock on Friday, 7 and Saturday, 8 October 2016.
A new obstacle on the course for the paddlers is the new chute down Baroda Weir, 500 metres after the start of the second stage of the two-day, 82 km race.
Brain child of the new race committee chair, Roy Copeman, the massive Fish chute allows paddlers the chance to shoot the five metre high drop for the first time down a tried and tested design of steps built within a diamond shaped fish chute, before dropping into a rapid below the weir.
