OUT­RIG­GER

THE lo­cal out­rig­ger club will host round two of the North Queens­land Zone com­pe­ti­tion this week­end.

Out­rig­ger Whit­sun­day will host its largest event, with more than 150 pad­dlers com­pet­ing across OC1, OC2 and OC6 races, with dis­tances vary­ing from 500m, 6km and marathons of 15km.

Out­rig­ger Whit­sun­day pres­i­dent Re­nee Martin said the club was ex­cited about host­ing the cham­pi­onships and en­cour­aged the com­mu­nity to at­tend.

“The open mixed races will be the best spec­tat­ing race on the day with 19 crews go­ing to the start line – that’s 114 pad­dlers on the wa­ter,” she said.

“The re­gatta will be held at... Boathaven Beach, al­low­ing for bet­ter view­ing for spec­ta­tors and not too much in­flu­ence from ti­dal change.”

Se­nior Out­rig­ger Whit­sun­day mem­bers will com­pete on Satur­day with the ju­niors sched­uled to fol­low on Sun­day.
