Paddlers take up Oz Day challenge
Last year’s inaugural paddle exceeded expectations when 360 paddlers took up the challenge to paddle from Wategos Beach to Main Beach, raising more than $6000 for local charities in the process.
This year, organisers are tipping up to 600 paddlers will take part using longboards, shortboards, Nippers paddle boards, stand-up boards and racing skis.
There is a $10 entry fee and entry forms for the paddle are available from www.bbsacc.com.au which must be submitted on the day at Wategos during the registration period from 8 am to 9.30 am.
The paddle is due to start at 10 am with presentations and a barbecue at Main Beach from noon.
