The 2018 Qld Canoe Marathon State Championships and PaddleFest is a wrap and what a great week-end with over 200 paddlers competing across the two days!
This year the Marathon Committee wanted to broaden the appeal of the event, be more inclusive of all paddling disciplines and get more paddlers involved in the event! So the decision was made to move the Qld Canoe Marathon State Championships back to a two-day event, host the event in an iconic location, and include a PaddleFest of events, comprising of kayak & canoe event, plus a SUPs race, Flatwater Ski & Ocean Ski Race. Unfortunately conditions were not suitable for Ocean Ski Race but it was great to see lots of paddlers join in the flatwater ski race.
Thanks to all of the paddlers, supporters, volunteers and our event partners for a great weekend at Winders Park, Currumbin.
A special thanks to our event partners and sponsors, including City of Gold Coast, Queensland State Government, Qld Canoe Marathon Committee, Currumbin Creek Paddlers Club, Australian Paddler Hq, Paddle 2 Fitness, and Barz Optics for your support of Qld Canoeing and Paddling.
