Every year hordes of the paddling fraternity descend on Underberg for the annual N3Gateway Drak Challenge, a premier K1 National Canoe race that sees the uMzimkulu river on our doorstep awash with paddles and canoes. Unlike the previous year that saw a flash flood from the previous evening render the race down to a few hundred participants (due to the dangerous nature of the river), this year was the exact opposite. A recent dry spell saw the river levels sink so badly that organisers of the race were forced to make the race shorter, and consequently start the race on our doorstep! Here are some photos of the start to day number one of the race.Untitled-5 Untitled-7 Untitled-8 Untitled-9 Untitled-10
