The 9km Distance Race

Info

We are anticipating a NE wind, predominant this time of year.  The 9km course will be in a downwind direction from The Illawarra Yacht Club, across Lake Illawarra, finishing at the Shellharbour City Rowing Club.  Both start & finish will be on water.  Warilla Surf Club will be supplying water safety.  Boards may be of any size, leashes must be worn, & whilst PFDs are not mandatory, they are advisable.  This race is recommended for experienced distance paddlers.
