The Challenge has been laid down, Backpaddock Lakes Boat Race will require grit, stamina and some serious boat building skills. It’s time to put reputations on the line.

Teams are invited to enter their homebuilt boats and race the full length of Backpaddock Lakes, round the Island and back to claim ultimate glory - hopefully making it across the finish line with your boat in one piece.

Teams must be made up of four members, boats need to be completely manmade, no pre-existing boat-like structures will be accepted. Boats must be non-motorised but you are able to power your boat with sailing rigs or sails. Paddles are probably essential to ensure you get some traction to make it to the end of the Lake and back! Awesome Prizes on the day!

Supporters are vital, bring along your family and work crew to cheer the teams on and watch the watery mayhem.
This will be a great afternoon of entertainment at Backpaddock Lakes, including music, BBQ and picnic.
