Among the kayak winners, Dane Sloss was the first male to come in (46 min) with female winner Erin Blanch following not far behind (51 min).
The slightly slower stand-up paddlers came in next, with Kate Baker the first female (1hr 5min) and Jackson Cosgrove (1hr 53 sec).
Organiser Jo-Ann Spiteri said the event ran almost without a hitch, with ‘just a few minor injuries’.
‘We are really grateful there were no protests on the day,’ she told Echonetdaily.
‘It was a great family day at Brunswick Heads.’
Jo-Ann gave special thanks to Kim Rosen from Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre, Craig Read from the Surf Club and Denise Curran for her admin support.
