Winter series Teams Race on the Yarra

Fairfield and Ivanhoe Northcote Canoe Clubs hosted the lastest winter series race on Sunday 19th June.  Two to four boats per team raced from the INCC bowl to Kanes Bridge or Dights Falls depending on the division. More than 170 paddlers overall!  The  aim was to work together to get your whole team across the line. Any types of boats could combine together in a team. Fairfield was well represented with at least forty paddlers in canoes and kayaks.
