[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he annual Hansa Fish River Canoe Marathon, which heralds the arrival of summer in Cradock, delivers some of its best moments at the Cradock Weir on Day Two of the race.

Locals and students gather on the bridge and on the river banks to cheer their favourites on. The serious river racers share the water with the social racers, who are dressed up in costume. This year it was all about Disney.

Here’s a selection of shots taken around Cradock Weir in 2013. If you want to see more of this excellent two-day event, visit the official site: www.fishmarathon.org.za – it’s full of galleries, videos, results, backgrounders and the history of ‘The Fish’.
