Hawkesbury Canoe Classic 2018 - 27-28 October 2018

Another HCC done and dusted!
Lane Cove has again put up a strong team for the annual Hawkesbury Canoe Classic - 111km overnight down the Hawkesbury from Windsor to Mooney Boat Ramp.

  • Results are still being worked through after a couple of unscheduled ferry hold-ups and the race having been foreshortened due to weather (affected those who didn't get to the finish line by ~6am).
  • The Hawkesbury Canoe Classic primarily supports the Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation, and every LCRK entry and the associated fundraising activity helps this great cause.
