The Race

The tail end of a canoe, much to the amusement of the owner who made me take a photo of his tail end. See below!

Boats everywhere!

Under the bridge was a particularly rough patch as the river wasn't really high, so extremely rock. Lots of people were getting either stuck on the rocks, or capsizing in the rapids afterwards... very exciting.

Hundreds of people lined the bridge watching ready to capture the mishaps!

Then the speed boats.

This series of photos sees the boat approach a protruding rock- left hand picture on the left. They smash into it and as you can see on the photo on your right it throws them out.

They were extremely lucky as it was so rocky around this area.
