Day Two

Map Berg Day Two1. Start at Zonquasdrift (9:00) -33.3422, 18.9789
The river is very narrow and fast flowing at this point, therefore competitors start in batches. The top 30 paddlers will start as they finished on the first day, so you will be able to see them starting at elapsed times behind the leader in his yellow jersey.

2. Gouda bridge (10:07) BRIDGE PRIZE -33.2567, 18.9694
Return to the tar road and turn left towards Tulbagh. Turn left towards Gouda / Porterville. Drive past Gouda and turn left towards Moorreesburg on a dirt road. It is advisable to park on the main road and watch from the bridge.

3. Railway bridge (11:00) -33.0247, 18.7881
Follow the dirt road toward Moorreesburg all the way to the turning after you have crossed the railway line. If you are tow – ing a caravan rather carry on towards Bridgetown or leave it at the gate. This is a beautiful spot. Close the gates.

4. Drie Heuwels (11:55) -33.1325, 18.8639
Only enter if the farm gate is unlocked. Close the gate behind you.

5. Bridgetown/ NGK Kampterrein (12:12) -33.1067, 18.8412

This is also a great picnic spot while waiting for the paddlers to finish.
