Entries are open!
Get in early before the bird, or with the bird, or just ignore the bird altogether. If the bird gets there first, it'll cost you more.

Found after the race:
1x lifejacket and 1x spray deck. Probably from a Uni team boat. May have been deliberately left in the park.
Contact if you are the owner.

And now, compare the results from our backup results system Webscorer.
We will be using this system next year.
And the event next year is on the 22nd September.
All the horror stories about the tides seemed unjustified as there was plenty of assistance on the way back for most of the distance. Oh no, I can feel a rap coming on....

After making many adjustments for incorrect entries and paddlers starting in the wrong start waves, we have a pretty close approximation to accurate results. Thanks for your patience. Final results will be published as soon as they are confirmed.
To all the paddlers who completed the 2017 Myall classic....well done. Conditions were not nearly as bad as predicted. Those who missed the event missed a great days (often close) racing.
