This season we would like to welcome back the Palm 2 Pines (P2P) to the ocean racing series, which we ran way back in 1996 along with the first ever King of the Harbour.
The Palm 2 Pines will be run in conjunction with the Sydney International Paddleboard Classic (SIPC).
The Northern Beaches will be graced with the very best ocean paddlers in the world over the four disciplines of Ocean Paddling with these two events.
We have numerous courses available to secure the best downwind conditions for these events. At present the event will run from Station Beach, Palm Beach to the famous pines of Fishermans for Skis and OC1s, and Avalon to Fishermans for SUPs and Paddleboards but will change to suit. The P2P and SIPC will start and finish in calmer water allowing competitors to get out cleanly and not risk their craft in dangerous shore breaks.
The last time the Palm 2 Pines was run (1997) it was won by legendary South African Paddler Herman Chalupsky who is still doing the rounds today.
The last event in almost a month of great events The Palm 2 Pines and Sydney International Paddleboard Classic promise to be the biggest events of their kind on the eastern seaboard.
The Palm 2 Pines is an event of the Australian Ocean Racing Series.
