TMC OC6 Jetty Regatta 

Saturday, 6th March 2021

A huge day of outrigger canoe racing was held in near perfect conditions on the pristine waters of Geographe Bay.  Clubs attending, Fremantle, Hurricanes, Kwillana, Perth, Mandurah, Rockingham, Wavemasters, Westcoast and Geographe, all competed for the coveted Jetty Challenge trophy with racing in the women’s 8km and men’s 10km marathons and the mixed 6km race.  Overall winners on the day were the Rockingham Outrigger Canoe Club. 

Club junior U16’s also raced the 6km course with Geographe taking out the win followed by Kwillana in 2nd and our other Geographe team coming in 3rd place.

The highlight of the event was the Mixed OC6 event which boasted a record number of 20 entries! The hugest race in the history of WAZA competition! The start line was spectacular as everyone squeezed to find their spot and line out to the first marker behind the lead boat. Our very own Geographe mixed team made us all extremely proud finishing in 2nd place amongst a very strong field of paddlers.

A great end to the day is the TMC Water Recycling Da$h for Ca$h.  The crews are made up of a mix of paddlers from all clubs which promotes unity and inclusiveness which encompasses the spirit of outrigging.  All boats had an individual beach start in a timed 500m sprint to the finish line. This is always a fun way to finish off a great day of competitive racing with all clubs combining and getting to know each other.  

Presentations and dinner were held at the GBYC following the event.  Thanks to all of our great sponsors, TMC Water Recycling, Busselton Vet Hospital and Happs Winery, without your support days like this just wouldn’t be possible. Lastly thank you to all our volunteers who continuously go above and beyond to support our growing club.
