Annual St Huberts Island Paddle Regatta

Sunday 10th December at 9 am at Long Arm Reserve.

Time to paddle off the excesses of your attendance at the Xmas Dinner @ Daleys Kitchen 8 days before.

 

It’s Christmas... wear your Xmas hat! Kids also welcome.

Here's a new approach for this year's Regatta...

Starting at 9 am at Long Arm Reserve we’ll paddle in a tide-determined anti-clockwise direction by kayak, canoe, paddle board, stand-up board or raft into each of our 6 canals, finishing sometime after 12 noon back at Long Arm Reserve, unless you peel off home on the way back.

 

BUT... on the way...
When you are about to exit Marina Cove, you will be treated to a sausage sizzle at the home of President Rod and Committee Member Kim.
All recharged you then continue through Rileys Channel and back around to Long Arm Reserve for some bubbly.


This is not a race, just an enjoyable morning of paddling with new and old friends, experienced or inexperienced. All ages can take part. Those with a spare craft please let me know and I’ll put you in touch with someone who’d like to join us but doesn’t have one - they should make contact with me as well.

This adventure is dependent on the weather and you’ll be contacted by email/Facebook if we have to call it off.

I’d also like to hear from anyone in the canals who would like to be a welcoming host.


Would you please register your interest with JoAnn Edwards at 4343 1319 or email joanndeal@tpg.com.au with your contact details and whether you are paddling singly or with a friend.

A few photos in a Gallery here...

We had about 20 kayaks so it was a good roll up. We stopped for watermelon with friends, then a sausage sandwich at President Rod and Kim’s beach in Marina Cove and finished up at Longarm Park for champagne and nibbles.
The weather was perfect, sunny and no wind, but the tide was low.  However we managed to get through the weed beds OK.
A really great morning.
 
Some of the photos were taken by Dianne Wagstaff from under the bridge. She couldn’t do the kayak because she came off her bike and broke her arm a few weeks ago.
