Friday night 5th of May 2017 the kick-off of the Batemans Bay Paddle Challenge 2017 took place, with a great JJ’s bonfire, fire pits, live music, food & coffee vans and… marshmallow toasting for the kids!
The crowd was a perfect mix between paddlers checking in for their race the next morning and locals coming out to ‘lounge’ near the fire and listen to the live music. All with our iconic bridge in the back… Batemans Bay at its best!
Thanks everyone for joining us and all volunteers and businesses for making this first check-in night a huge success! And extra thanks to JJ’s at the Marina for sponsoring this event and supplying all cosy furniture as well!
