Dash and Crash About

The Dash and Crash is a KZN canoeing institution and is one of the oldest races on the calendar!

NB The 2022 race has been moved to the traditional Upper uMngeni course – Albert Falls campsite to Old Mill.

Normally it starts with a lap on Camps Drift (to space the field out) and then down to Ernie Pearce weir, and then on to the YMCA Weir – all the fun of the start of the Dusi.

The challenges on the uMsindusi River continue with Musson’s weir (actually a rocky rapid now) and Highway Rapid before you reach the finish above the Low Level bridge.

It is a great way for novices to get to grips with the fun on the Dusi.
