PADDLERS will chop up the water at St Francis Bay in their furious quest to become the next king of the Kromme next weekend.

Now in its tenth year, the annual Pam Golding Properties King of the Kromme is set to take place on Easter Monday, March 28.

Hosted by the St Francis Paddling Club and sponsored by Pam Golding Properties, the main race will stretch over 20km, while the short race will have contestants paddling for 12km.

The big question is: who will be crowned the King of the Kromme? Will it be South African National paddler and reigning king Greg Louw, or will former Kromme king Jordan Zeelie from PE cross the finish line first? Another top contestant in the running for first place, is young local paddler Phil Smith.

All paddlers are welcome to compete, even if they are beginners.

A Carbonology Sport split paddle to the va-lue of R2 600 will be up for grabs during a lucky draw.

The King of the Kromme paddles off at Quasyde in Seaglades Drive at 10:00. The entry fee is R75 per paddler. There will be a braai and drinks after the race. For more information, contact Richard Arderne at 083 284 0168.
