Paddling news

Next weekend a contingent of 14 Shark Island Paddlers will visit the fire-ravaged South Coast to compete in the annual Makai Cup, a 22km downwind race tracking prevailing downwind swells to finish in Ulladulla Harbour. A perennial favourite both for its big ocean conditions and its status as the best-run event on the ocean-racing calendar, this year the Cup gains additional status as the sole qualifying event for the ICF Canoe Ocean World Championships being held in Portugal in September, and as such, has already attracted a record 170 entries.

Last year SIP had three paddlers in the Australian team contesting the Worlds across various age and gender categories, and is keen to maintain its national-level presence with a strong showing in this race. Paddlers have been exploiting the recent high winds and tides to train in the harbour and the open ocean, with remounting skills in particular showing dramatic improvement amidst close encounters with ever-present and occasionally excitable grey-suited aquatic friends. Over and above the outcomes of the race, though, SIP looks forward to supporting the Makai Paddlers Society and their communities, who have been through so much, and still have much ahead of them.

Ramp etiquette tips:

Be safety conscious. Booms can swing with wind change.  Pedestrians and young children are unaware of the dangers, be very careful when crossing the footpath.
Please do not queue across the pedestrian footpath outside the Club. Move boats forward when washing.
Use the ramp for launch and retrieval only.  Not for parking.  Not for rigging.
Please DO NOT LEAVE DOLLIES ON THE RAMP.  One person leaves a dolly on the ramp then next person follows that example and the next and pretty quickly the ramp is unusable.  Store dollies on the grass or on the brick pavers behind the winch.  Stack the dollies to minimise the space they consume.  Place them out of the way.
