Commencing on the beautiful Clarence River from Grafton Rowing Club, competitors have a choice of either 10 kilometres around Susan Island, or 20 kilometres around both Susan & Elizabeth Islands. Both courses will finish back at the Grafton Rowing Club.

Safety boats will be stationed at intervals along the course.

Open to all non-powered watercraft, including rowers, dragon boat paddlers, kayakers & surf boats.

We encourage participation by both local and out of area clubs.

A limited number of rowing boats and oars are available, donations in appreciation of this would be added to the funds raised.

Please lodge expression of interest ASAP if you are interested in this option.

Following the event lunch will be held at the Grafton Hotel at your own expense.
