Always when I drive down the steep windy road to Dusi Bridge, its with intent – to go tripping or to race. It felt so good this time to be driving down because today I was Father Christmas (to some). I had a trailor with ten spanking brand new Mustang K1’s.

That day only three guys officialy got given a boat. Seeing their name stickered on the side made them extremely proud. I let three others also use the new boats, but ‘no name’  meant it was just on loan.

I have more than ten guys chomping on the bit to represent the ‘top 10′ contigent hoping for a top 50 Dusi. So I must be cautious to whom I give equipment because with the regular training now, some guys who were off the pace a few weeks ago, are rising through the ranks.

Last nights running time trial, Nhlanhla stepped on some glass which put a deep gash in his foot. I felt for him when he walked back to the start, knowing that he wanted to claim line honours and stamp his authority on the others. It is a concern  whether he can do the race on the weekend. He is super competitive in the under 18 category, placing 2nd at the recent Ozzy Gladwin Canoe race. Richard continues to impress, along with Mmeli. Mzamo (Loveday Zondi’s little brother – under 16) took 2min off his best time and Skhumbuso was 3min 30 sec quicker.

Tonight’s paddle time trial will be a gala affair with numerous lucky draws for the 30 odd participants. A new beginning the final cut phone spy falls squarely into the latter camp
