Event Description: 

One of the world’s toughest outrigger canoe racing events, the annual Hamilton Cup is expanding and has changed its name in 2012. The inaugural Gatorade Battle of the Paddles will be held on Hamilton Island from June 14-18, in partnership with the Australian Outrigging Canoe Association (AOCRA) and more recently, Surf Life Saving Australia. Run over four exciting days, competitive outriggers will be joined by athletes from three other popular paddle disciplines; Surf Ski, Stand-Up Paddle Paddling and Board Paddling. Races include:

Downwind surf ski races for junior, open and masters categories, including a special long-distance course from Lindeman Island to Hamilton Island’s Catseye Bay;
Sprint Stand-Up (SUP) courses for junior, open and masters categories;
Board paddling races for both junior, open and masters categories;
Sprint, medium-distance and marathon outrigger races; and
the infamous 42km outrigger marathon.
