First at the startline is FGPC’s annual V12 race on Saturday 18 February. This is a 10km double-hull race that transits along the Gorge under 3 bridges (Selkirk, Tillicum and Craigflower) for a 10km loop through Victoria’s scenic inland tidal waterway. Plenty of draw prizes supplies and goodies available for hungry paddlers. Boats, tents and heaters supplied by FGPC for registered teams. Visiting teams will be given their preferred heat-start-time choices on a first-registered, first-served basis. CLICK HERE for more info and to register.

Next on the startline is Victoria’s annual 2-buoy turn, 1500m sprint race, Kan-U-Hakit on Sunday 5 March. This race is for OC6 teams with stamina and steering experience who want to test their mettle against local and visiting teams at this spectator-friendly event. Boat, tents and heaters supplied by FGPC for registered teams, along with plenty of draw prizes and snacks. This event advances teams through qualifiers, semi-finals and final races, so 3 races over the day for the majority of teams who advance to the finals. CLICK HERE for more info and to register.
