RCC is planning a big day out at Penrith Whitewater Stadium on Saturday 16th February as part of the Sydney International Whitewater Festival (https://whitewater.paddle.org.au/)

Join RCC members from 11:30am to watch the best paddlers from around the world compete in the Oceania Open whitewater slalom finals and wildwater races (spectator entry is free). Bring something to sit on and your own lunch or buy it at the Whitewater Café.

We will then get on the course ourselves from 1pm for a few hours of recreational paddling after which you can hang around and watch the Australian Open Freestyle Championships.

Experienced RCC members will be there to guide and instruct you on the course if you need help.  They can also safely take you down the course in a two person inflatable kayak if you are not yet up to paddling the course on your own.  All recreational paddlers will have to pay the $38 PWS daily recreational paddling fee and $20 (refundable) bib deposit
