International Outlaw Open Water Race.

On behalf of the Geelong Outrigging Canoe Club we are extremely excited to incorporate Outlaw into the GOCC 2009 Regatta.

The Geelong Regatta, Vic Zones largest, is traditionally held over two days of the Australia Day long weekend as part of Skandia Geelong Week: Australia's biggest sailing event and recently named in the top 10 of Victoria's must do's.

The inclusion of the Outlaw Open Water event on the Saturday, utilising the magnificent Victorian Surf Coast, we hope will establish the Geelong Regatta as a must do amongst all Outrigger paddlers nationally.

This year the opportunity exists to paddle with one of the world’s best Outrigger paddlers and many of Australia’s finest Ski paddlers on the Saturday and then compete on the Sunday in the OC6 Regatta (multiple events) on Corio Bay amongst the activities of Skandia Geelong Week.
