The 2016 Noosa N1SCO Race Series kicked off in fine form on Saturday 17th September. A glorious day greeted the paddlers with clear blue skies and beautiful warm water. As this was the first of the series, we utilised the opportunity to introduce N1SCO to the group and also ran some “clinic” style coaching before, between and after the racing, as the main idea of the series and N1SCO is getting more people stoked and wet with SUP.
Fiona, George, Rach & Liam from Adventure Sports Noosa teamed up with the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club to provide the perfect N1SCO race location, easy access, close facilities, restaurant’s and café’s, spectacular views and plenty of spectators.
A mixed field of seasoned paddlers, first timers and the legend super-groupie Brian at the young age of 81, set for some great fun and exciting racing.
After some tech we set into the sprints and distance races, enjoying a “cruising” lap with training prior to the “race” lap(s) for each distance. In usual N1SCO fashion back to back heats and plenty of paddling left everyone exhausted and enjoying a playful paddle post racing, tail spinning and falling into the inviting waters of the Noosa river.
As just the first race of the 5-part series, the next races are destined to be equally as awesome, the dates are as follows.
- Race 1 – 17th September.
