South Africa is a dry country, not known for it's rivers. What a treat to call a city with a mighty river HOME! After living in Nashville for twenty years, the Cumberland River runs strong in my veins. When we arrived here in 1996, the Cumberland was rather nasty. Thanks to the efforts of The Cumberland River Compact, paddlers and swimmers can now enjoy clean stretches of the river. There is more work to do. Team Vuvuzela and Friends of South Africa loves a good competition, especially when it involves a great cause. We are excited to be back for a fifth year of racing and raising money for our favorite river.
