24 Hours on Sydney Harbour .

Paddle-Sports Race

2021 CANCELLED - we will see you again in 2022

Start / Finish: Spit East Beach

Smith's Boat Shed, 81 Parriwi Rd,

Mosman NSW 2088, Australia



24 Hours on Sydney Harbour is a 24 Hour paddle-sports race that takes you through the beautiful Middle Harbour.


The race starts, transitions and finishes at 'Spit East Beach'; right at the Spit Bridge in Mosman.


It is open for solo paddlers or teams of paddlers. You are able to paddle any craft that you wish and you can even change craft during the 24 hour period; this will make your time on water more interesting.

A race that is this long is going to be a huge achievement for all paddlers involved and in the true spirit of participation, if you need to pull out early, then you will have your race time / distance recorded and you will not be issued a DNF listing. Maybe you can only achieve 10 or 15 hours; that is still amazing and should be rewarded and come back next year to break your own record.


You will get to paddle through TWO different courses:

1) 10km loop during daylight hours - Spit East Beach to Bantry Bay

2) 6km loop during the night and the second day - Spit East Beach to Balmoral Beach (Southern end)


Adults: $175.00 / Children: $95.00

Paddle solo or in a team

Kayaks, surf-skis, outriggers, canoes - singles, doubles, triples or quads.

24 Hours on Sydney Harbour is open for solo paddlers or teams of paddlers.

You can be racing for the fun of it, the challenge or to try and smash a world record.

You can also change your craft at the different transitions; start by paddling a single surf-ski and then change to something more stable as you are getting through the tired periods.

Racing teams can also break it up; you could all paddle singles to start and change to doubles if you need to cool down a little.

DON'T have your own craft? Well don't worry, we can rent surf-skis or sea kayaks / singles or doubles.
