A class is three vessels or more of the same class. The classes for 2023 are as follows:
We will not accept individual paddlers in any vessel type for this race – it is far too dangerous to paddle alone. Don’t ask us – we will not change our minds no matter how much experience you have.
The nature of this race makes it truly expeditionary and extreme, therefore we look for people with a general outdoors background and not purely those who have mastered their vessel class. This race is in every way about your individual outdoor confidence and ability to survive and self-rescue, as it is about paddling. Applicants often fail to gain a place on the race due their poor due diligence and integrity; this is sadly why we cut far more people than we select. Please ensure all application information is accurate and true – this is an insurance requirement as well as a vetting tool.
We are looking for
Bushcraft, medical, paddle class experience and a positive attitude go a long way. Experience does not need to be courses and formal qualifications, but bush time and a passion for the outdoors is often obvious in successful application.
Once you have applied, we will screen applicants and we will email those successful with further guidance. All racer teams will be provided with a detailed racer briefing providing teams with all of the detail required to start conducting your own research and training. We will not provide mapping.
