Thank you to Kiaran Lomas for our timekeeping.
A few points to consider: When completing your race you must finish between the blue buoy and the pontoon to have your time recorded. When doing laps you stay outside the blue buoy (pass to the left of the blue buoy). This complies with rules you’ll encounter at PNSW marathon events and also makes it easier for the time keepers to keep track of who is finishing and who isn’t. A 1 minute penalty will be applied to consistent offenders. The new Kingston Loop option is going ahead for paddlers willing to complete a portage. There has been a lot of interest from ski paddlers who don’t want to portage and the committee is working out a safety plan at the moment. Once the plan is devised the Kingston Loop option will be available to more paddlers.
Please volunteer to time keep or barbecue. If you are unsure of how the timing is done we can sit you with someone who has some experience.
