Nowra Bushfire Recovery Regatta

It was a massive weekend at Nowra for the Bushfire Recovery Regatta. The 8 km race around the island was cancelled after the first heat (lucky – we were in Heat 2) due to the poor weather. Torrential wind and rain hit and had intrepid clubs like Bei Loon beaching onto the island, tipping water out of the boat, and paddling back to the start line!

On Sunday, the weather was kinder and we enjoyed racing on the magnificent Shoalhaven River.  Thank you to all who came along and survived! We will be back next year!

 

 

Paddling in Beautiful Orange Autumn

Paddling on Lake Canobolas

A sunny autumn day with no wind made for perfect paddling conditions in late April before our monthly meeting and coffee catch up. Discussions centred around upcoming events – Dunns Swamp, Nowra and maybe a visit to Parkes with talk also about fundraising and the Western Region Regatta.  Training remains at the 7.30am for 8am timeslot on Saturdays until a change in the weather moves us to a later Saturday spot or Sunday lunch time paddle.
