Penrith Race 1 with Sudu

First race with our Sudu friends – second place. We anticipate that after the next heat, we will be in the finals.


Nowra/Sudu made the final and came in third. Congratulations to our friends at the new Sudu club – a place in your first regatta. And following on from this, an email from our head coach…

Hi Paddlers,

For practice a strong 2nd in 2nd heat of Masters Mx was a highlight,and for the men 2x2nds in heats and a 3rd in final with our new friends Sudu shows promise in Masters Open for the rest of the season.Big thanks to our volunteers Dana and Jane and other job doers at regattas that keep the NWD machine ticking over.
SO with the days getting longer and less chilly I urge all of our paddlers wanting to race to attend our quality training sessions as much as possible.
No i in team and it will be a team effort if we want to make this season a good as the last one.
