Mandurah Classic Paddle

The Mandurah Classic Paddle is on again and scheduled for Saturday the 21st November. This exciting ocean event is made even better with a good sea breeze expected to be blowing on the day making the course a straight downhill dash parallel with the coast up to Halls Head then into Comet Bay and finishing on the Beach in front of Seashells Resort, a distance of 14km.

Registrations open at 12.30pm in the park at the intersection of Northport Boulevard and Batavia Ave in Port Bouvard. The beach here will also be the launching point for all craft who will then paddle out to the start line in the Dawesville Channel. The race will start at 2.00pm and will include outrigger canoes and ski paddlers.

As mentioned the finish line will be on Town Beach in front of Seashells Resort where the presentation will also be held later by the pool overlooking the beach with a BBQ and drinks to finish the day. We are pleased to welcome Seashells aboard as sponsors who are also putting up a prize of a weekend for two staying at Seashells Mandurah. Kayaks 4 You is also a major supporter of the event donating cash and prizes for the event. The City of Mandurah is another valued supporter who is assisting with the water safety on the day. Together with our major sponsor Spirit Paddle Sports and our nutrition sponsor Shotz Sports Nutrition, all things canoeing at Canoeing Down Under and Go Paddle sports, this promises to be a great event.

We look forward to seeing you all in Mandurah for this exciting event.
