Results from 7.5km Time Trial, 23rd November 2017

Conditions were near enough to prefect! Just a little breeze to help prevent overheating. Mick is giving his new K1 a workout lately, and set possibly his best time in K1 over 7.58km, though he has been quicker in his SLR. Cam was also trying out K1, and did almost the same time, despite having already done one ... More

Cam’s Report from the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic, 28th October 2017.

Hawkesbury Canoe Classic 2017, Saturday 28 -Sunday 29 October.   The first thing I noticed on arrival at Macquarie Park, Windsor was the alarmingly fewer numbers than ever before, I guess that is something to be addressed for the future of this iconic event, what was once, the outward bound Hawkesbury Canoe ...

Results from Winter Series Race 8, 5th November 2017

We did get the welcome rain today, at times, but it did not dampen our enthusiasm. A "typo" by the Handicapper, had Andrew Kucyper starting too early, but he deserved his win in the 7.5km section, equalling his recent form, despite completing his 10th Hawkesbury Classic last week. Congratulations Andrew, ... More

Good luck to all of the paddlers in this weekends 111km Hawkesbury Classic!!

Report from Winter Series Race 6, 24th September 2017

The predicted hot day was not so bad on the River, as the humidity was low! Those who did the short distance were happy, though!
