It’s that time of year again! Yes, the Lifestart Kayak for Kids 2011 is a mere days away and the team is all set to paddle across Sydney Harbour in order to raise funds for special children.
This year Team Fat Paddler will be putting a record six paddlers on the water – four “old hands” (FP, Ned, Alan and Grumm) plus two first time rookies (Simon and Nat). With an eclectic mix of boats (two slow Tupperware sea kayaks, two fast composite sea kayaks, an Epic V8 ocean ski and one mystery boat!) we should look suitably ridiculous. And watch out for our water cannons.
It’s not too late to register and have a crack at the 18km race yourself of course, with registrations still being taken on the Lifestart Kayak for Kids site. Or if you’d rather throw a few rubles down in support instead, you can do so here on my fund-raising page.
Remember, we’re all doing it for the kiddies!! Hope to see you there. Cheers – FP
