Wow, take a look at this photo, snapped by Rob off the southern Sydney cliffs last week in the middle of an extraordinary spell of clear, calm mid-Winter weather.
That's John Lee & Neil Duffy lookin' for the pot of gold.
I've loaded it up at a decent resolution, feel free to expand it out to full screen, quite an image.

October 27 - Hawkesbury Classic
The focus event for marathon paddlers from around the country, ranging 111km along the Hawkesbury River overnight from the foothills of the Blue Mountains all the way to the Brooklyn Bridge. A very tough event, in which as many as 500 hardy souls take part each year. My write up of last year's race is here - Emptying the Tank.
The focus of all of my training so far this year, a 10.5km paddle, followed by a 21km trail run (!) and another 10.5km paddle leg along the Hacking to finish off. This event is open to teams of two or four, so if you have a mate who can run it's a great race to share around some pain & achievement! I also have a bunch of running club mates keen to do the run section if anyone fancies doing the paddle leg in a team that would be very competitive (at least in the run part!)

We've also recently sponsored events like the Cronulla Bay Runner, the Cockatoo Cup race & the annual Hunter Klancopia on the central coast, rounding off a diverse range of paddling activities encompassing much of what paddling is all about.
If you need any information on any of these myriad events please drop me a line.

|Tide Race Xtra - nearly here…!|
We can now announce that the rotomoulded version of the Valley Gemini SP is under production and will be shipping with our next Valley container in August, arriving here some time in late September. Despite worsening currency rates we are still confident that these Gemini SP RM kayaks will come in under $2000, and we have plenty coming.
Stand by for a summer of play & surf.
