Calling all keen paddlers and adventure racers – this is an iconic paddle race that should truly get you excited as you paddle around an island just off-shore from the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse and the sheltered waters of Flinders Bay.

With a mass start to get you excited and plenty of water safety craft to keep an eye on things, this is a unique opportunity to complete an iconic paddle course down near Cape Leeuwin!

This standalone paddle race means you no longer have to organsie a team or do multiple legs to hit the water as part of this huge event weekend, so put the boat on your car and head south for this standalone event.
