“The finest canoe club in the whole dam universe”
Dabulamanzi Canoe club was founded by a group of paddlers who decided to set up the second canoe club in Johannesburg (after JCC), which would be more conveniently situated in the north of Joburg, in 1979.
The founder members, realising that Emmarentia Dam was to be the premier Gauteng canoeing venue of the future, had the vision to establish a club, which today consistently has a membership of some 1000+ members, comprising world champions in various categories, SA National Team members, SA champions, a strong provincial representation and recreational (fish n’chips) paddlers.
DABULAMANZI DERAKANE DASH WINTER SERIES 2018, sponsored by Add Resins
The Dabulamanzi Derakane Dash Winter Series!
In 2016 we had the Chill Cheaters… In 2017 we had the dry bags – both of these are the envy of the South African, if not the world’s paddling community… With this in mind 2018’s prize promises to Trump both of these and so I urge the paddlers and socialites alike to clear your calendars from June to August so that you don’t miss!!!
Watch this space as well as the club for further details!
Special thanks to our sponsor Add Resins, without whom this event would not be possible.

Happy mother’s day
To all those mothers who paddle, mothers who second, mothers who drop their kids to paddle, mothers who let their husbands go and paddle and any other category of mothers, have a wonderful day. We salute you.
Please see the coaching page for the new canoe coaching programme offered by Adro with the strong backing and support of the club.
The car-park and boat pound have been, as they always are, the source of profound wisdom and public opinion on what’s best for the club in terms of coaching programmes and what different people are trying to achieve with their paddling.
What we have here, is a solution that we believe will offer the broadest benefit to the greatest number of our members. Whilst maybe not quite perfect, and we’re sure the members will all give the benefit of their opinions from time to time, it is a programme (or selection of programmes) that the committee fully endorses and urges everyone to utilise to the best of their ability to meet their needs and achieve their goals.
Adro’s contact details are here for any further questions should you need more of an explanation. Adro can also send you the brochures directly.

As usual it is difficult to get commitments so trailer arrangements are still in the air.
