Peninsula Paddle 2019: Sunday 8 September

We are getting ready to paddle again. This is the 10th Year since the Peninsula Paddle was started – a special moment to celebrate and to think about what happens next. Over the years we have made some progress, but not enough. Join us for a fun paddle on Sunday 8 September. The City of Cape Town’s Water Strategy, which was accepted by Council (30 May), signals a new commitment in addressing the Cape Town’s waterways  which is the reason why the Peninsula Paddle was started 2010. Join us on the next paddle with like-minded organisations including the Friends of Liesbeek, the Khayelitsha Canoe Club, CTEET and UCT’s Future Water Institute. There is no cost, but you need to register on the website. Go to the Registration tab on the website.



Memories from a previous paddle….


Recent paddle – Peninsula Paddle 2017:

Thanks to everyone who participated in the paddle. Huge turn out again with over 80 paddlers at times along stretches of the waterways. Massive thanks to Greg Bertish and his Little Optimist – first time anyone has sailed/rowed through the waterways. Loads of support on day with plenty of helping hands from the City to community based organisations who were able to make this a fun event and bring urgent attention to water and our waterways. Scroll down to find photos of the event.

Let’s keep the rivers running even in a drought’.

Janie Siebert’s wonderful art piece tells the  story of the paddle and other key messages. Great piece!
