The NSW Islands Challenge - A Midweek Sydney Harbour Island Explorer

 Grade 1-2

Mid-week 29-30 March 2017

A cruisy trip with an historical theme circumnavigating the islands of Sydney Harbour and camping overnight on Cockatoo Island.  We’ll be passing by (or under) some of the harbour’s iconic sites and checking out some of the historic craft in a few of the bays along the way.  Day One distance is approximately 17km.  Day Two approx. 15km (including a 6.5km pre-breakfast paddle option from Cockatoo Island to Rodd Island and back).  One or two shore breaks on harbor beaches each day plus generous “exploration” time on Cockatoo Island.

Accommodation options on Cockatoo Island include BYO tent and gear or “glamping” in on-site tents with stretcher beds with mattresses (see http://www.cockatooisland.gov.au/stay for options).

Put-in and pull-out will be Little Sirius Cove, Mosman (where there is free on-street parking, toilets and tap for boat washing). Kayaks to Grade 2 minimum, please.

Register your interest on the Club’s online system.  Numbers limited.
