Sutherland Shire Canoe Club and Dolls Point Paddlers have been running this community paddle since 2019.
The “20 Groynes” is a fun Community Paddling event, run over 4 hours, offering a paddling challenge on the ever changing waters of Botany Bay, where competitors will paddle a 4 kilometre lap course, completing as many (or as few) laps as possible within the 4 hour period. The event starts and ends at the Georges River 16ft Sailing Club, Sandringham.
Paddlers should expect to pass at least twenty (20) of the infamous Botany Bay ‘Groynes’ each hour.
This is intended as a ‘fun’ event, and paddlers of all craft and ages are encouraged to enter.
You can paddle the full distance/time on your own, or you can get a few mates together, have a bit of fun, and paddle the event as a Relay.
Relay Teams can be any combination of boats/gender/ages (Singles, Doubles, Combination).
As an example, in the “Relay” category, it is absolutely acceptable to enter a Team made up of combination of OC6’s, OC2’s and Ski’s, and even SUP’s, paddled by a mix of ages and genders.
You must nominate a Team Name in your entry, whether you are a Team of 1, or a Team of 20.
It is important that in Teams of more than 1, that ALL paddlers enter EXACTLY the same Team Name.
Your Entry Fee also includes a drink in the bar at the Georges River 16′ Sailing Club afterwards, where, COVID guidelines permitting, presentations will be made while we all enjoy a few laughs and swap some tall tales.
