Now for the 40th Anniversary Canoe Classic 

111km or 65km.... Your choice!

29th October 2016

A fun paddle with a serious purpose.

Each year up to 600 paddlers paddle overnight in the moonlight, down the Hawkesbury River from Windsor to Brooklyn, to raise money for charity.

With 2016 being the 40th year of this iconic event, an optional “short” course is being offered.

A 65km paddle from Windsor to Wiseman’s Ferry will be available.

Just the thing for new starters as well as former “Classic” paddlers making a comeback for this paddling event milestone
