2021 Paddle Queensland Ocean Racing State Championships

256

Three of our Sandgate Paddle Club members participated in the recent 2021 Paddle Queensland Ocean Racing State Championships held on the 7th November 2021. It was a 15km downwind course from the Southport Spit to Miami on the Gold Coast. The right conditions turned up on the morning of the race, with 10-15kts of NNE with some residual E swell. Armand, AndrewB & PeteH got amongst it with the 70 odd other competitors on the day. With Armand coming in 14th in the 50-54 division, AndrewB 1st in the 40-45’s and PeteH 8th in Opens.

Thanks to Paddle QLD (Scott, Eden, Julian and all the volunteers) for putting a great event!
