Rod Fry Race 2016


Please either have a paddle or volunteer – it takes lots of people to run events like this!


Sunday, 3rd 2016.  Register now here.

Meet at Swan Canoe Club, Johnson Parade, Mosman Park, for this annual 10.5km race to Fremantle and return. There’s a short course of 3km for guppies and casuals as well. Cash prize $250 for the winners of the two most contested kayaking or ski classes. Other prizes from many sponsors as usual.

Race classes are: K1, K2, Ocean Skis OS1 & OS2, Spec Surf Skis, Plastics and Sundries & Recreational. Age groups are Guppy, Under 18, Open, 35+, 45+ and 55+. Female and Male. Classes and age groupings with insufficient entries will be combined with other related groupings.

K2 & OS2 – enter as a Team, then place your two paddler names in the “(Teams only) Member Names” field.

Note the “Recreational” class again this year – to encourage our non-competitive members to come and enjoy the day without feeling any pressure to win – paddle 3km. Special prizes in this class!


Registration confirmation: 7:00am-8:00am SHARP (please confirm your Class and age group!)
Briefing: 8:30am
First grid away: 9:00am

Join in the socialising afterwards with a sausage sizzle. Cakes and light refreshments available as well as the raffle and handing out of spot prizes whilst results are being worked out.

The race is named after the late Rod Fry who was a long-time member of our Club and a keen and nationally successful C1 and C2 slalom paddler. He was sadly killed in a car accident whilst returning from a paddling holiday at Yallingup. There are photos of him at the Club.
