First Gatsien Session of the Season!
The word had been out on the Whitewater Tangent for weeks, and the Sunday was finally upon us: the first water release on the Vaal for the summer. The canoeists were having a race, along the section above Parys, and had managed to convince the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) to release about 80 cumecs of water. I’m not sure how the canoeists always manage to get these water releases organised, but they do. Maybe it’s because there are a lot more of them around? If it was up to me we would have a water release every Sunday.
