The Mad PaddleWHAT:
The inaugural Mad Paddle. A 30km plus downwinder across Port Phillip Bay ending at Sandringham Yacht Club, taking place on March 18 2012. Enter as an individual solo paddler, a relay team of two or as an individual to be teamed with another paddler. A maximum of 50 teams. BBQ lunch for paddlers, friends and family at SYC from noon. Silent and live auction items. Invite friends and family along and help raise as much as we can for Sandringham Hospital.
Sunday March 18, 2012. Expected paddle start time 5.30am. Transport from SYC to the start point leaves at 4.30am sharp.
$50 entry fee per paddler to help cover some of the costs.
We are hoping to raise $25,000 for a mobile ultrasound unit for the Sandringham Hospital Emergency Department. All donations are tax deductible. A minimum of $250 in sponsorship per paddler is to be raised.

This is an event rather than a race. Ideally, we are aiming to have paddlers finish at around the sametime (lunchtime).
The start point is weather dependent. Transport (for the first 50 paddlers that register) will be provided from SYC to the start. Update: 40 places on the bus have now been allocated. Only 10 places left!
Support boats will be provided for a group of paddlers to carry team paddlers and supplies.
An event briefing will be held on the day prior at SYC at 5pm and attendance is compulsory. Boards must also be provided at this time. Each team is limited to one board.
You must be a member of SUPVIC to participate.
When registering, you will need to provide emergency contact information for each paddler.
