The Pink Lady® Drakenstein Canoe Race is an exciting two day canoe marathon and this year plays host to the 2018 WP K1 River Championships. This race is on the most exhilarating and scenic parts of the Berg River and will be the most fun you could have in a two-day event in the Western Cape. It is a K1 race but K2's and K3's are welcome. The race is rated as a B grade by Canoeing South Africa, opening the race to most paddlers in South Africa.

The two-day race covers 53km on the beautiful Berg River, as well as a 4km fun race on Sunday 24 June. Spectators and paddlers will be treated to a fun, enjoyable family day at the Berg River Brewery to finish off the event at the Brewery.
