The Stand Up Paddle Perth Flatwater20 2013 State SUP Marathon Championships

The Stand Up Paddle Perth Flatwater20 had a great turn out of 40 paddlers on a perfect Autumn day with very little breeze. The marathon champion - Marcus Tardrew did the 19.2km course in 2.03hrs. Given there was no assistance from tide and wind, he was averaging 9.4kmh. Hard to catch! The portage provided a welcome change as did the circuit course. It added another skill and also gave an opportunity to break a draft (as well as waking the legs up!).
