Harbour Racing

Harbour Racing

Open Water racing is possibly the fastest growing paddlesport in NSW. This sport is open to a variety of craft, from Ocean Racing Skis, SLSA ‘Spec’ Skis, Outrigger Canoes, to Sea Kayaks and Stand-Up Paddleboards. Harbour Racing is the sport of racing these craft in enclosed or protected waters.

PaddleNSW organises the ‘Harbour Series’ of races, hosted by PNSW member clubs in Sydney and regional areas. They are suitable for all paddler skill levels, with short course options for the less experienced, and longer courses in more exposed waters for those more capable.

The series has been running continuously since 2012, and has been key to the growth of several new open water clubs.
