You can take a serious approach and compete for the Honour & the Glory (no Trophies, sorry) in either the Solo or Competitive Relay categories, or you can get a few mates together to have fun and see how far you can go in 24 hours (or 16 hours) as a Social Relay team.

Solo categories cater for Singles (1 paddler maximum) and Doubles (2 paddlers maximum) craft only.

Relay Teams (Competitive) competing for the maximum distance trophy can have from 2 to a maximum of 4 paddlers.
