65 kilometres, two portages and about 150 paddlers will say goodbye this way to 2011. Last year, three of the great south african competitors took the podium. Victory was for Len Jenkins in 3h. 58 min, just followed by Hank McGregor and junior Brandon van der Walt.
As soon as we get the results from today's race, we will let you know through a new post.
P.S.: I write this once the race has finished. We already know that the victory has been for Lance Kime with Brandon van der Walt second. In Ladies, Hilary Pitchford has been third. Still unofficial results. Once the full list is in my hands, I'll upload it in a new post.
