Starting from stable craft you can progress through to your competition goals. Coaching, training, you will get out what you put in. Your local canoe club would be eager to hear from you. Canoe SA can provide you with information and practical assistance to reach your goal.

Held on the June long weekend each year by the Marathon Canoe Club is another opportunity for people with other abilities to compete. Two SA Paracanoe paddlers attended the RPM in 2012 and raced in the mini-marathon. Paddlers from Redfins Canoe Club have raced in many RPM marathons in both team and individual categories. Join us in 2013 and have a lot of fun on the water.
