Knysna SPLASH, the annual festival presented by the Rotary Club of Knysna, will be back on 29 December 2018 with two fun-filled events for the whole family.

SPLASH is the Garden Route’s entertaining water-based festival. Two exciting events provide enjoyment for both participants and spectators with challenges for the whole family!

  • Buy a numbered duck and watch your yellow duck race in the SPLASH QUACK ATTACK
  • Brave the waters and swim the SPLASH KNYSNA LAGOON MILE

Now in its seventh year, Knysna SPLASH is an important fundraiser for Rotary, which donates all proceeds from the entry fees to safe swimming.

The Lagoon Mile Swim

Registration will open on Saturday, 29 December at 08:00 at the Knysna Yacht Club for the Knysna Lagoon Mile Swim (1650m) and the Junior Swim (450m).

The Lagoon Mile (1650m) starts at 10:00 at the Knysna Yacht Club hobie slipway. The course goes around the Yacht Club, turns right into the small harbour, goes under the bridge, around the Quays island and back to the finish at the hobie slipway.

The Junior Swim (450m) starts after Lagoon Mile at the same venue and goes around the Yacht Club into the harbour but finishes at the John Benn slipway.

The Junior Swim is for 10-year olds and younger and only the first three girls and the first three boys will receive medals. Parents and other age groups may also take part but will not be eligible for medals.

Each participant’s time will be recorded. Swimmers who complete the one-mile course will receive a medal. There will be special medals in each race category for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. The winners in each male and female category will receive special prizes.

Race categories are: Male and Female: 11 – 13; 14 – 17; 18 – 27; 28 – 39; 40 and over.

Entry fee for 10 and under is R150. For all categories in the Lagoon Mile, the entry fee is R300.

Caps are compulsory for the swim and Knysna Rotary will include a cap with each entry.

The SPLASH Quack Attack, a fun yellow duck race for up to 1,500 ducks, will take place at 12:00 at the Knysna Quays. Buy a duck number for R30 or buy two or more numbers for R25 each, then watch your duck compete in the heats. The idea is for the tide and wind to encourage the ducks to ‘swim’ along the water canal under the yacht bridge.

Total prize money is R4,000 and the person holding the winning number of the first duck over the line will win R2,500, second R1,000 and third R500.

Ducks numbers will be on sale at the Knysna Waterfront on 22 & 29 December.

Event director Andrew Finn said that Knysna Rotary is looking forward to seeing both locals and visitors participating in the SPLASH festival. “It promises to be lots of fun for the whole family, competitors and spectators, and it’s for a great cause!” he said.

December nights in Sedgefield

Written by

Tony Cox's series of concerts, December Nights in Sedgefield, is a retrospective of one of the most influential South African acoustic guitarists of our time.

And for the first time in Knysna, he'll have the euphonious tones of his daughter Thuli to help him sweep fans along on the journey of fine musicianship laced with his throwaway humour and infectious social sideswipes.

Cox is a multiple award-winning guitarist who has travelled the world and performed on its finest stages. 

His performances across SA and beyond are the stuff of legends. He now resides in Sedgefield and is putting on this series of shows for the good people of his chosen town and, of course, anyone passing through who would like to immerse their ears in an evening of world-class music.

Cox's golden-voiced daughter Thuli will be supporting her dad with a set of jazz and pop covers. There quite simply is no better way to spend a December evening in Sedgefield.

December Nights will go down on 15, 22 and 29 December at St Anthony's Church hall, Flamingo Ave, Sedgefield. Show starts at 19:00 and tickets cost R120 for adults, while pensioners and students pay only R80. Tickets available at www.quicket.co.za, and discounted tickets only available at the Fijnbosch Coffee Shoppe, 31 Main Service Road, Sedgefield. Phone 044 343 1870.

* Please note: no tickets will be sold at the door.

Spend your lazy days with Jordan Dale at Tapas & Oysters in Knysna.
Relax over a good meal and live entertainment.

Jordan has been making music... playing guitar, drums, base, and putting words to a page. 
He is a bit of a fitness fanatic too...
