10th Macleay Island Classic 2018
This year was the tenth anniversary of the Macleay Island Classic and we celebrated in style.
The conditions were perfect when the paddlers set off on Saturday May 19 to circumnavigate the 15 km around Macleay Island. Three paddlers led the race for the full distance with very little between them, until the last stretch when Ryan Paroz from Kuluin put on a final spirt to cross the line and claim first prize. Congratulation Ryan.
And congratulations to all our paddlers. It was a great day for all, with some coming from as far away as Coff”s Harbour in NSW and Hervey Bay in the North and all places in between.
Sunday was another great day with the relay race and the OC6s paddling around the Island. Hopefully next year we can build on these two events and have a lot more entrants.
The Macleay Island Classic is supported by the Redland City Council and many local businesses and organisations. Without their support the Classic would not exist.
