Preparing for the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic

Team Fat Paddler - An unstoppable force!

Team Fat Paddler - An unstoppable force!

With only 4 sleeps to go, a certain heavyish kayaker is getting somewhat nervous. Have I trained enough? Is everything organised? Will I be able to paddle all that way? Well, with the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic only days away there’s not much I can do to address these questions even if I wanted to!

The good news is that I’ve compiled a crack support team to help me on my quest. An Aussie as the brains of the outfit, a Kiwi to handle sheep-liaison, and a Brit to drive the car and generally whinge a lot. Haha, but seriously, they are three fun-loving fellas that no doubt will prove to be a crucial part of Team Fat Paddler.

So now with my crew onboard and my gear prepared, I just have to wait a few days until the HCC starts. Bring it on!  🙂
