Narrabeen: Race 9, 25th July, 2021.
Race 9 of the 2021 PNSW Marathon Series on the Narrabeen Lake at Billarong Reserve, will be hosted by MWKC.
This is also Round 3 of the 2021 PaddleNSW Junior Paddler Series, catering for new Junior paddlers in U12, U14, U16 & U18 categories, outside of the normal Divisional racing.
Juniors wanting to enter and contest the Junior Series should enter one of these categories instead of a Division. Points scored in each race of the 4 race series will count towards an End of Season Score and the Ultimate Female & Male Winners in each age category.
ALL paddlers must complete the registration process. For the avoidance of doubt, that means BOTH paddlers in a Double, and ALL paddlers in anything bigger.
This will be a 5 km Lap Course, with the 20 km Divisions (1-7) paddling 4 laps, Division 8 paddling 3 laps, Divisions 9-12 paddling 2 laps, and Division 13 paddling the one lap.
There will be a Portage which is mandatory for Division 1 paddlers, and optional for all others.
Juniors will paddle courses as follows:
U8 & U10 - 2 km total (turn @ 1km)
U12 - 5 km total (1 lap)
U14 & U16 - 10 km total (2 laps)
