Century City’s Bianca wins second stage of Berg River Canoe Marathon

Bianca Beavitt, the Century City paddler sponsored by the Century City Property Owners’ Association,  comfortably won the second stage of the women’s 2015 Berg River Canoe Marathon today and now has almost an hour’s lead over the rest of the ladies’ field.
Yesterday, Bianca got off to a strong start and there was little other women competitors could do to counter the dominance of the Century City competitor who wasted little time in powering her way to a commanding stage victory that saw her with one hand on the trophy at the end of stage one.
Bianca ended the first leg of the race in a time of five hours 43 minutes and 11 seconds. In second place was Robyn Henderson in 6:15.07 and in third place Joritha Prins in 6:37.5.
She compounded her efforts today finishing stage two in a time of nine hours 53 minutes and 31 seconds ahead of Robyn Henderson 10:48.50 in second place and Jane Swarbreck (11:10.47) in third place.
The four day race ends at Velddrif on Saturday and we wish Bianca all the luck in bringing the trophy home!
