Paddle Event Returns to Lancelin with 20 FREE Entries

The Lancelin Ocean Classic is in it's 32nd year and will bring the best local, national and international kitesurfers, windsurfers, ocean skiiers and SUP boarders to the shores of Lancelin, just over an hour north of Perth, Western Australia. The weekend, which will run from 12-15 of January 2017, will be host to hundreds of competitors and spectators as people flock from around the world to witness the best that the coastal town has to offer.

Last year we launched a Paddle race, which encourages Ocean Skiers and SUP boarders to compete in the marathon event from Ledge Point to Lancelin. This year we have a total prize pool of $5,150 just for the paddle discipline. The race will be 10km and will be run in conjunction with the Windsurfing and Kitesurfing 25km marathon.

"The paddle event in the Lancelin Ocean Classic is a great addition to paddle events within WA, with such a great prize pool we look forward to seeing this event grow over the coming years." Rosalie - Canoeing WA.
