John Newton Team Boat Challenge a big success!

The QC Canoe Marathon Technical Committee and Currumbin Creek Paddlers Club jointly organised the inaugural John Newton Team Boat Challenge which was a great success.

A special thanks to Currumbin Creek Paddlers Club and its volunteers, to Chris Hurley solidly supported by his wife and members of the QC Canoe Marathon Committee, to Ken Wallace and Dane Wilkinson (John Newton athletes) and a special thanks to John Newton’s family who attended, participated and presented the medals and trophies at the end of the day.

Congrats to Currumbin Creek Paddlers Club for taking out the Club Championship (highest points score) and the Club Handicap Awards; despite a DNF from their fancied K4 team that ran aground at the first buoy turn and bent their rudder!!

Amanda Rankin has prepared a video of the day as well:  

We look forward to seeing you next year’s event!
