Event Description

The event is suitable for ocean skis, outrigger canoes and sea kayaks. Course is a lap of Ballina Island and timing the event using a Webscorer program. There is a staggered start with slower paddlers starting first and faster paddlers starting last. If the handicapping goes well, the aim is that all finish within a couple of minutes of each other.

The start is at Martin St boat ramp on North Creek. Paddlers are to report by 8.00 am and the first starters go off at 8.30 am. Entrants must be a member a club that provides personal accident insurance and wear an approved life jacket if required by NSW Roads and Maritime Rules. This basically means all single paddlers.
