Thank you for entering The Charles Stewart Memorial Cup “THE CHUCKY” that will take place tomorrow Saturday 19th March. Round Two of the Shaw and Partners Australian Ocean Racing Series.
Tomorrow we pay tribute to our good friend to ocean paddling, Charles Stewart. Charles passed away in January 2016 from a heart attack after finishing an ocean paddling session. Charles was instrumental in bringing sports like ours to the public through TV productions via The Wide World of Sports where he worked in the early days, through to coverage of trips like Ningaloo Dreaming and Hamilton Island. Thank you for joining us for Charles’ memorial paddle tomorrow.
All event activities will take place at Fishermans Beach, Collaroy.
