The Surfcoast Downwinder Paddle on Saturday, 14 April 2018 is part of Adventurethon Demolish, a multisport weekend of paddling, biking and running.
This is a point to point downwind paddle taking in some of the Surf Coast Shires most iconic landmarks. Starting at Fairhaven Beach (if in a small swell) or over at Urquhart’s bluff (if the swell is larger), both options paddle past the Aireys Inlet lighthouse before heading towards Cape Roadknight and passing the amazing Surf Coast cliffs and stunning beaches.
The prevailing wind is south-west at this time of year, with swell and wind assisting paddlers towards the end goal of Anglesea Beach. Even if the wind doesn’t show up for the race day, it will be an awesome sampling of the coastline, which always looks better from the ocean.
