Jervis Bay in a Day Paddle Challenge, 2 May 2020
You are invited to take part in the Inaugural Paddling and Kayaking Festival being held in the world famous waters of Jervis Bay, one of the premier paddling and kayaking destinations in Australia.
Events include a short family fun course as well as races over 8km, 16km and the epic 42km challenge, circumnavigating the entire bay, catering for a range of kayaker and paddlers’ skills and abilities.
The event is a major fundraiser for Marine Rescue Jervis Bay, a voluntary unit that looks after 850 square kilometres of ocean and provides assistance to more than 200 vessels a year.
The Bay is twice the size of Sydney Harbour and is unique for its unspoiled beauty and access to wilderness areas, making it a world class paddling playground. This amazing course follows the famous white beaches, Booderee National Park wilderness areas and the open, exposed crossing from Murrays Beach to Longnose Point. It’s an open ocean environment and an amazing challenge for paddlers willing to go outside their comfort zone as well as elite racers looking for a challenging course.
The races will be fully supported with safety on the water provided by Marine Rescue NSW vessels, including water craft and checkpoints around the courses providing paddlers with support and assistance.
There are races to cater for many different craft, including paddle boards, sit on top kayaks, sea kayaks and ocean skis.
