Day 2 of the 2016 Pink Lady/Drakenstein K1 canoe race, held of the 36.6km section of the Berg River, from 500, upstream of the Daljosaphat Weir in Paarl to Botmansdrift, was so different for Day 1 of the event that it could have led to some paddlers wondering if it they were paddling on the same river and in the same country!
