Paddle events are springing up all over the country as the various disciplines seem to grow in popularity. The fifth annual Lake Macquarie Paddlefest is on Sunday week, March 6, at Speers Point Park, Warners Bay. Over the previous four years the event has raised more than $50000 for it's worthy selection of local charities, & this year the beneficiaries are the homeless folks in the area.
It's a massive event, with more than 500 people expected to attend, with everything from a ski race to Dragon boats, Outrigger boats, stand up paddling & of course sea kayaking.
We'll be on hand with our full demo range, as well as Rob Mercer, myself & Chris James running sea kayak instruction sessions throughout the day. If you've got a question about your own paddling, Paddlefest is a good opportunity to come & say G'day & spend some time on the water ironing out the puzzling thing in your technique that has been bugging you! It's also the perfect chance to get in the Nordkapp you've read about in books, take the Rockpool Taran for a blast, or roll around in a Tahe Marine Greenlander.
You can get all of the details of the event on their excellent website (click HERE).
