Sika recently sponsored CANOE SA (CSA) Safety with equipment for their on-river safety and sweep teams. Sika has been supporting CSA for the past three years and this year sponsored two K2 kayaks, two plastic rescue kayaks, paddles, kayaking jackets and headgear for use in their events and courses.

CSA safety officer Rob Hill said, “Sika is a company that has openly supported the ‘safety first, safety always and no compromise’ initiative for the CSA-accredited paddling events, its paddlers and the rescue service providers – NSRI, Navy and SAPS Rescue Units.

This has been done with accredited and certified swift watercourses and the introduction of a river awareness course for schools and all river users. Sika has provided the much-needed, all-important equipment for the on-river safety and sweep teams. In these hard economic times, it is with huge appreciation and respect that CSA has a sponsor like SIKA that continues to support its sporting events.”

Sika’s marketing manager, Nadine Thurtell acknowledged, “Sika takes pride in ensuring safety in all aspects of business, so it was important for Sika to get behind CSA to assist with the vital safety equipment they need to ensure that the best safety practices are taken on the rivers.”
