The Pittwater Challenge was unfortunately unable to proceed due to unacceptably strong wind conditions. A southerly front earlier predicted to hit mid morning arrived at around 7.30am, and though we waited for the possibility it might ease off and made several course changes to concentrate safety resources, the call was made to cancel the race.
Fortunately for all entered, Manly Warringah Kayak Club graciously offered to take up the option of the reserve date and reschedule the race to August 15.
All entries for 14th March have been transferred to the new date.
Organisers appreciated the many words of thanks from paddlers for the sensible decision and the offer of postponement.
