Adventurethon Anglesea 2018-8483This is a point to point DOWNWIND paddle taking in some of the Surf Coast Shires most iconic landmarks. This course is made to change with the weather, thus still providing the best downwind paddle.

Starting at Fairhaven Beach (if in a small swell) or over at Urquhart’s bluff (if the swell is larger) with both options paddling 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.

Once you are around Point Roadknight you will either finish on Anglesea Beach or at Point Roadknight Beach (condition dependent). The swells wrap around the point to provide clean swells that beg to be ridding in a Surfski or Outrigger (in fact you should get down and do that whenever you have the chance).
