Indian Ocean Paddlers Warrior Motif 2014/15 Summer Series


The 2014/15 Astute Capital Management Summer Series of time trials is an 6 race series where your best 4 results count towards your overall position at the end of the series. This series is open to all paddlers not just members of CWA clubs. We ask, nay, beg that you do not front up for the races with your favourite Avon plastic complete with trailing rudder – trailing rudders are to downwinds what under slungs are to white water – a very poor choice.

So come on down to the events and see if downwind ocean paddling is for you, we have water safety at all events and prizes post event, nothing fancy, bragging rights are the main thing here.

Each race of the series has a different sponsor, Indian Ocean Paddlers would like to thank our new main sponsor, Astute Capital Management, and all the individual race sponsors .

Race fees are $15 per race for IOP and SLSA members and $25 for the general public.
