Here are the first pix from this Spring’s Float Your Fanny Down the Ganny in Port Hope Ontario. It was a bit chilly so there were a lot less squirt guns and water ballons on both side – spectators and floaters both. But as you can see from the pictures below that dis not prevent fun on the Ganaraska as its spills through port Hope.
The Riversplits and recombines here
This is the rafters coming into the final stretch.
The Racing Rafts
The fast canoes and kayaks are already through, so now you have the rafting racers – trick: light and fast versus lots of paddling arms. Who wins? Come on out and find out.
Rubber Ducky Fun
Along with vendetta races between rival teams – a lot of the fun is constructing river worthy conveyances and taking them and your fannies down the river.
Sailboating down the Ganny
Here is another example of crafting your way down the river. This sailboat actually travelled well – keeping the draught up above the rivers many snags. Also the pointed bow would deflect off scrunching rocks.
Seat of the Captain
Manny of the vessels have a “Captains seat”; but that gets abandoned pretty quickly in the fast rapids on various stretches of the Ganny.
Just before the Ganny hits downtown Port Hope there are a number of nifty little falls – lets say it is a Dunking Reception!
