Hawkesbury Classic 2007

The Hawkesbury Classic. If you love paddling you'll love this event!

Hawkesbury Canoe Classic

Classic night is one long night

Mark with his ground crew & wife Catherine. At least one of them looks to be having fun.

Wismans Ferry round midnight
What a night - Mark did it in 12:07 with a short break and I did it in 12:22 non stop. Next time I'm doing it in a Mirage 580 or some other fast boat. Last time it took me 12:57 (including a 30 min stop) using a wing paddle. This time I used a flat blade - conclusion - wing or flat makes no difference when paddling a sea kayak! I felt much less fatigued when I finished this time which I also attribute to the flat paddle.
