Kromme race

THE Pam Golding St Francis Easter Kromme River Challenge scheduled for Saturday, April 7 will be held for the fourth consecutive year.
The first year the distance was 28km to the top of the Kromme and back. The next two years it was adapted to a shorter 20km course by going up the Geelhout tributary instead.
The host club this year is the St Francis Bay Paddling Club which was formed last year. The club has time trails at 5.30pm every Wednesday – in the sea in summer and in the canals in winter.
St Francis Bay is a paddler’s paradise with safe canals for beginners and bad weather; a river for longer paddles, and the sea for summer … and good winter weather as well. For the more experienced paddlers, the ultimate fun is a “downwind” in the sea, for example St Francis Bay to Jeffreys in a howling westerly.
The club has a surfski race, the Oyster Bay Challenge, planned for Sunday April 29 and organisers are expecting many of the top paddlers in the country to enter the race.
