We've condensed the the racing to maximise the tide, warmth and daylight.  We will start races 1 and 2, 10 minutes apart. Races 3 and 4 are same.  Race 5 runs remains by itself (see below)

Again, we will have FREE hot soup and bread/rolls to help keep you warm and sustained through the day. Your health, wellbeing and safety is our priority.

The last race (4/6/22) in front of Suttons Beach was almost flat, east of the Hornibrook Bridge the conditions jacked up to 1.2m with a 8 - 10m wave length which made paddling and steering challenging but a quick ride home. We expect similar conditions, so please ensure you have all your safety equipment checked and loaded on board for each race. Please dress appropriate for the weather and conditions.
