Goulburn Classic: Sat 11th November 2017
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 being 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 and river
kayaks (k1, tk1s, and tk2s).
You can paddle 1, 2 or all 3 stages, it’s your choice.
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.
