Organiser: Melbourne Canoe Club

Venue is still to be determined

Planned for the Fitzsimmons Lane, but will most likely be relocated to either Dights Falls or Finns Reserve subject to access approval and river flow. Warburton is also not out of the question if the river hold up. The last 2 Yarra Series slaloms have been held at Fitzsimmons Lane and a different venue is sought in the interests of variety. A venue decision will be made on Thursday night and posted on Paddle Vic Website, here and emailed to the clubs.
