A day of team competition amongst other local clubs, and also socialising, learning from others, and mainly having fun - and a barbecue!
Note that this day is about teamwork, getting to know other paddlers, practicing skills (new and old), and having fun. There are no long paddles as the activities are run as a relay, and take place in a defined area close to the shore. There is time to rest during and between events.
Come along to the interclub Olympics with the Qld Sea Kayak Club, the Sandgate Canoe Club, and the UQ Club. This is NOT Club against Club. Mixed teams decided on the day, but will adjusted for skill levels from beginner to advanced. Fun events and followed by a BBQ.
