Massive Murray Paddle 2021 (Feb 2022)

From Monday 21 Feb to Friday 25 Feb we had several FCC related crews racing in the Massive Murray Paddle.  Wennie (K1) and Rowan/Fiona (TC2) and Stephen (UC2) completed full distance.  Lisa, Marlena and Don (K1 relay) completed most of the distance.
Some highlights:

  • Fastest full distance boat was Stephen and James in UC1
  • Mud, glorious mud!  Squelching in the mud at each checkpoint on day 5.
  • Coming around a tight bend at 7.20am on Thursday, just out of Echuca/Moama and finding the paddlesteamer Canberra bearing down on us (that was what that "toot" was.  A quick paddle to the right and phew we were well clear...
  • Swirls, snags, swimming snakes ... and no capsizes
  • Amazing landcrew.  Being refuelled and re-energised at each checkpoint (see "mud" above) was fab.
  • Generous donors to our causes.  Thank you!
  • Overall results
  • Overall handicap results
