The day of the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic is upon us and Team Fat Paddler is ready to set off on the big adventure. With three responsible (!!) fellas in the Fat Mobile following me down the river, I can expect all my food and drink needs to be met with utmost professionalism. If they don’t forget me and fall alseep that it!
There will be a live stream over the next 24hrs or so of the event managed by @ireckon via both Twitter and Facebook.

On Facebook, photos and updates will be on the FatPaddler.com page.
In the words of the great Beastie Boys – “NO – SLEEP – TILL BROOKLYN!”
Have a great time! Wearing my Fat Paddler shirt in support!
We are all so proud!
Well done, FP and support crew!
Congrats on finishing this monster of a marathon. I know what you went through, and it’s a seriously tough race to finish.
All your preparation, FP team support, and raw determination to get there have paid off. Legendary effort mate.
Enjoy sleeping for the next 24hrs! And I hope the aching arms and shoulders recover quickly.
Were the neon-floweredy shorts part of your strategy for keeping yourself awake? XD
Well done, even so!
“Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget” – no matter how hard you try 😉
Nice to chat with you on the water Saturday night. I am the guy in the double who shared a love of the Greenland Paddle. Good to hear you finished – a great effort for your first time.
You can check out http://www.vocal.org.au or http://www.manningpaddler.ning.com for details of that trip we spoke about. Feel free to come along if you wish.
All the best,
Gday Simon. Nice meeting you on the water. I don’t think I quite realised how hard HCC was going to be!! Will check your site out shortly. Cheers, FP
It can be addictive too! At the end of the paddle I was saying to myself “why would I ever do this again” and not long after finishing I was saying “I have got to come back and do it with the Sea Leopard and the greenland paddle!” Needless to say my girlfriend thinks I am crazy.
That’s not quite what I was saying Simon! I’m pretty sure the words I was uttering included “Never” and “Again”…. 😉
