INCC Yarra Paddlers’ social paddling events
We have a regular schedule of fun mornings with a short doubles race and BBQ every two months on a Sunday morning from 10 am. If you’re ready for a bit of fun and an opportunity to meet other paddlers…then put the dates in your diary now.

How it works
- Register online by 8 am and arrive at the clubhouse at 10 am
- two-person crews are drawn randomly – one novice and one experienced paddler – and assigned a ‘start wave’ (don’t worry that you’ll forget, we write the number on your arm triathlon-style)
- everyone listens to the briefing
- crews select a TK2, get their paddles and move down to the steps
- first start wave (3 boats) departs at 10.40 am, with a few minutes between each wave
- race downstream to Bellbird Landing and back (~5k)
- recover, shower, change – or a combination thereof!
- enjoy BBQ lunch
- congratulate the winners, relive the drama and excitement of the morning
- help tidy up and be gone by 2 pm
Sounds like fun doesn’t it? But we hear you asking...
- What boats can we use? – any TK2 club boat or your own
- Will there be prizes? There is a prize for the fastest time… but its mostly about having fun – this is NOT serious racing!
- Do I have to wear a PFD? Yes, absolutely
- Where’s Bellbird Landing? In the middle of the flying fox colony but we have a turn-buoy or someone calling out just to make sure you don’t end up at Dight’s Falls by mistake
- Why the random draw for crews? Its a great way to meet new people plus, if you haven’t raced before you can be confident that your buddy has the skills…it even could lead to some unique side-betting opportunities…
