COURSE DETAILS: Patterson River, Launching Place, Carrum VIC.
We use a straight section of Patterson River out of the way of major boat traffic. The course is 2.5km in length and is generally flat.
It can at times be affected by tide and wind but is generally a very safe course for all levels of paddlers.
PFD's must be worn with a signalling device attached (Pealess Whistle).
Please note that this is a TIME TRIAL and you will be responsible for your own safety - read our waiver carefully before entering. If you feel that the conditions are beyond your capabilities do not participate on this occasion.
Every boat on the water is a safety boat and we ask that help is given to anybody that may require it during the running of the Time Trial.
Paddlers must be good swimmers (min. 50 metres) be able to remount their craft without assistance in the case of surf or ocean skis, or have the ability to eskimo roll if in an enclosed sea kayak.
Any paddler who falls off and remounts his/her craft for a 3rd time MUST RETIRE following the next mishap by taking the most direct route to the safety of the nearest beach and reporting to the nearest FPA official as soon as possible.
