Sandridge Bay Series 2018/19
The Sandridge Bay Series is a fast, furious, but friendly racing series for paddlers of all persuasions: skis, outriggers, SUPs and paddleboards are all welcome. Held monthly from October to March on the sometimes-fair, sometimes-foul (well, bumpy, anyway) waters of Port Phillip Bay, this criterium-style racing format offers something for every level of paddler, from beginners to pros.
Join us as we enjoy the Melbourne summer months!

The course typically follows a circuit format, with each grade completing a requisite number of laps of the same circuit. The circuit itself, well, that's in the hands of the weather gods - we will change the course each month to take advantage of the downwind conditions. The course is typically contained within the area shown on the map below.
