Nine years ago, we started paddling plastic sit on kayaks as a fitness activity organised by former Ironman Champion Guy Leech. Now most of the group have progressed to paddling in major ocean racing events on surf skis. This mid winter race was organised for our group as additional motivation and goal setting during the winter training on Sydney Harbour. The course was mainly flat water over about 10.6 kilometres around the cliffs of the inner harbour. It was shot mainly on a Canon 7D with on board shots using Contour HDs.
