QC Adventure in the Bay
Saturday, 08 September 2012
Queensland Canoeing is running an orienteering competition on Moreton Bay. Enter teams and test your sea kayak skills.
Adventure in the Bay is on again.
Queensland Canoeing is holding this event on the 8th September 2012.
Registrations with QC need to be in by 17th August 2012, so show your interest ASAP so we can organise potential teams.
The event starts and finishes at Jacobs Well. The event is in a Rogaine (navigation) style on water. In teams of 3 or 4 you will be given a map at registration on the morning of the event 1 hour prior to the start time. Your team will then have until the start time to plan their strategy to visit as many markers as possible and gain maximum points and return to the finish line before the finish time of 4pm. The markers will be placed throughout the bay and will be worth different points as shown on the map. Along with the map showing all markers you will also be given a marker description and clue card. This will give the finer details of each marker so that you are able to locate them. (They are not all close to the water and not always on land) At each marker there will be a clicker that you mark your score card provided with to prove you have visited this marker.
Note that this is an event run by Queensland Canoeing and not UQCC. Therefore it is possible to enter teams that include non-club members (provided of course that non-members do not use any club gear). They can hire gear from various hire companies.
An entry form is on the QC website.
