Gold Coast City Marina Coomera Cup – A perfect race on a perfect Gold Coast day.  The second race of the Pacific Ocean Series was held at the Gold Coast City Marina on the Coomera River today with over 90 paddlers attending covering all categories Kayak, Ocean and Surf Ski, OC and SUP.

Paddlers arrived at the venue to an array of event and series sponsors from craft manufactures, coaching services and local businesses.

The paddlers’ course was three laps of a 4km course. As each paddler came around for their second and third laps they were cheered by 20-30 spectators and our DJ “Kirby” calling out first names for encouragement and letting the spectators know who was who.

Two of our younger paddlers took the lead early and where never troubled out front. Joel (K1) and Michael (Think Uno) took it all the way till the last turn with the K1 turning a little faster and sprinting to the win over the last 200m. These paddlers were followed by another two U/21 paddlers Tim Stenlake and Alex Tibbits with Olympian Daniel Collins (40+) coming in 6th. Adan McKane, Matt O’Garey, Jorden Clark and Damien Catran closing out the top 10. 

This was the first event ever to put K1 paddlers up against the states best Ocean Ski paddlers and I am happy to say that the Ocean Ski paddlers come out on top with 6 paddlers in the top 10.

A big thank you goes out to the SUP paddlers and OC paddlers that attended the Coomera Cup. The Pacific Ocean Series has been designed to be a Ski, SUP and OC event and it is nice to see these categories supporting the series.  The Coomera Cup and the Pacific Ocean Series could not be possible without the help of its sponsors and we would like to thank everyone of them for attending todays event, especially the Gold Coast City Marina.
