Official Race Report

“For the third consecutive year, Tim Jacobs has taken out the opening race of the Bing Lee LG
Oceanseries, in association with Epic Kayaks, ahead of Nathan Smith and Michael Locke.
The competition behind Tim was thick and fierce, boding well for the series to come. Second
and tenth places were separated by less than 90 seconds, the same margin by which Tim
gapped the rest of the field. Lauren Smith won the ladies, 30 seconds ahead of Mel Pelly. The
Vajda Canoes Rocks to Reef challenge had more finishers and more prize money than
previous years, and the biggest surfski expo ever seen in Australia to back it up. The growth
of the sport here in Oz continues to amaze, with the number of different manufacturers at the
expo and on the water continuing to grow every year.

For full results, check out for video Next race is the Land Rover Lion Island
Challenge on 9 October.”
