Canoeists replicate Dusi race pioneers’ feat in canvas craft

2013-11-27 00:00

EARLY on Friday morning a hardy band of 16 canoeists will set off on a four-day journey to Durban following the original Dusi canoe marathon route, paddling replica canvas and wood craft of the same design used by Dr Ian Player when he won the inaugural Dusi in 1951.

The four-day adventure has seen a gradual turnover in personnel in the decade that it has been run, with more and more younger paddlers joining the trip. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
