Our club is now 8 years old and we invite you to join us on our wonderful water playground for   the 6th annual Pasha Dasha GP. In 2016  16 Clubs, 320 competitors, 44 teams had maximum fun with minimal hassles.  Just pretend it’s “Island Time” once you arrive!

Bring family, friends etc and make a weekend of it. See the world’s biggest coal shipping port in action. Enjoy unequaled spectator access along the entire length of the course.   If that’s not enough, the foreshore is a great place to kick back and enjoy the parks & cycle ways, restored buildings, restaurants, etc, with kilometers of beaches just a stone’s throw away.
