Get SUPing with you dog on Australia Day!

Every man and his dog

Based in Sydney and looking for something active to do on Australia Day this year? Watsons Bay Stand Up Paddle will be holding a stand up paddle competition called Every Man And His Dog. That’s right, you’ll literally be paddling with your dog on your board. And our Sporteluxe mascot, Sporte Cheah will be leading the charge during this race! With stunning views of Sydney Harbour it’s a must-do for an active Aussie Day.

Don’t have a dog or a board? No worries! There are five race divisions: under 12’s, under 16’s, open men’s, open women’s as well as the race with your furry friend at the front of your board. If you haven’t paddled before, there will be introduction to SUP sessions so you can learn how to paddle your way into one of the world’s fastest growing sports.

The festivities don’t stop at the finish line. Following the race, there will be awards for race winners (including an award for the Best Dressed lookalike for the best matching man and pooch), an epic Aussie BBQ and a plethora of activities like beach cricket and volleyball.

Registration closes at midnight on Saturday 24 January so get in quick if you want to paddle away this Australia day!
