Welcome to our new Gold Coast Paddling Series.
These event will only be open water over the Currumbin / Talle Course. The same course we have used of a number of years so all paddlers can see month to month their improvement.
Frequency – Every 4-5 weeks (2nd or 3rd Saturday of every month)
Location – Winders Park, Currumbin
Course – Winders Park to Talli Shark Nets and Return
Cost – $10
Numbering – Each paddler will be given a personalized number.
Scratch Races – A straight ski race
Handicap Races – Paddlers will be give a handicap time once they have raced in either a scratch or handicap race (if a handicap race is your first race, you will be sent off with the last paddlers). *Times can only get faster and based off 60mins.
1 in 3 races will be prize money races. To be eligible to win prize money you have to have competed in either a scratch or handicap race within the past two months. Money for the top three place getters plus random draws.
We would like you all to register at www.paddlersclub.com.au and set up a paddler account and receive your racing number. *It is the paddlers responsibly to have the number on their ski.
All race dates will be on this site and your results will be linked back to your personal home page.
We are hoping this new format will help grow the sport of ski paddling on the Gold Coast. We welcome your feedback as we need your continual interest to keep the racing going.
