Welcome to Natal Canoe Club!







Located on the banks of Camps Drift in the heart of Pietermaritzburg, Natal Canoe Club is one of the oldest and proudest canoe clubs in South Africa.
 
The host of the annual The Dusi Canoe Marathon as well as a number of other prominent races, the club has produced numerous internationals, some world champions and generation after generation of elite paddlers that have become the benchmark for marathon racing.

The weekly club time trial on Thursday evenings is open to all paddlers.

The event starts in Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon, in Alaska and concludes at the Alaska Pipeline/Dalton Highway after seven to 12 days of paddling for 18 hours a day. Clearly, it is not for the faint of heart.
