You can paddle 1, 2 or all 3 stages, it’s your choice.
The Goulburn Classic is Australia’s oldest canoe race. It was originally 100 miles non-stop with heroic stories of paddlers negotiating the fast flowing river at night. In the 90s the race morphed into the Tour De bloody Goulburn, a tour that used staged sections to highlight the beauty of the Goulburn River. The event will have 3 Stages over one day with stage 1 and 2 being mass starts (in waves) with stage 3 may include a unique time trial event. The yellow jersey will be awarded at the end of each stage.
This event will cater for all classes however it is ideal for canoes, ocean skis, multi-sport and river kayaks (tk1s, tk2s, k1s & k2s).
The river has a powerful and deceptive current, the water is cold, therefore PFDS, footwear’s must be worn. Paddlers will need to be self reliant and competent in paddling in fast flowing water.
