South Africa won both the open “Senior” men and U21 internationals – with KZN men topping the podium in the provincial tournament, Western Cape women edging out Gauteng for the win in the ladies and Namibia picking up a win in U21. WC’s Sam Braid was awarded “Female player of the tournament”.

The Champicanoe2-300x225onship  was sanctioned and sponsored by City of Cape Town with additional sponsorship from Hansa, Fluid Kayaks, Switch Wallets, Klein Constantia, Mitchell’s Scottish Ale House and the V&A.  National coach Kevin Meier praised the organisation of the tournament – and facilities.

Big Box Containers sponsor a shipping container which enables the WCCU to store their canoes on-site.  Says Iain Clarke: “The Big Box Container was central to making this possible and driving development in the WC – with our National Lottery boats on site we now regularly get 20+ players for week night games.”
