Join us for a series of four fantastic kayak races at different locations throughout the region. Catering to all abilities and classes of kayak, with a great social atmosphere, and the camaraderie of being hard-core in the depths of winter, paddlers return year after year to test their speed and improve their paddle fitness during winter. The Southern Lakes Multisport Club winter series is a fantastic opportunity to kick start your training for Kathmandu Coast to Coast and Red Bull Defiance, and are handicapped so everyone from beginners to those epic speedsters looking for a blistering personal best, have a chance to win.
See you on the water in June!
