16TH - 19TH JUNE 2011 - Results

Over the 4 day event around 1000 paddlers from all over the world took to the water as part of the Hamilton Island Cup which included a series of sprints and marathon distances culminating in the 42klm Changeover Marathon on the final day. International crews came from Canada, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong. BRD was well represented by over 20 paddlers competing across all distances and all craft (OC1's, OC2's and OC6). Sun was shining, winds were strong, competition was tough and our BRD paddlers and crews were up there with the best!
