Race Support

This is a fairly new kind of support for prominent races, but for many paddlers these may make participation in a bucket list type of race in a foreign location either possible or just relatively trouble free in terms of what can sometimes be fairly involved logistics.

  • Sydney Harbour Surf Club - look at their paddle trip listings
  • World Paddle - look at their travel menu, includes race packages for Molokai (M2O), the Doctor, the Old Woman, Hells Gates 38, the Makai Cup
