The Gold Coast Ocean Paddlers Club Proudly Presents the "Shaw and Partners Gold Coast Classic Ocean Race". This event is an exciting paddling race for all Ocean Ski, Stand up, Prone and Outrigger paddlers, with race competitors travelling along the picturesque Gold Coast coastline from the Southport Seaway to Tallebudgera beach on the Northerly course, and from North Kirra beach to Snapper Rocks, and then through to Tallebudgera Beach on the Southerly course.

Paddler Requirements:
- Must be over the age of 16 years at the time of race.
- All Paddlers sign event declaration that they understand the risks and acknowledge that they have read and understood the event water safety plan including their responsibilities in it (eg helping a distressed paddler, rendering assistance etc.)
- It is mandatory for ski and SUP paddlers to wear a PFD, and for Prone paddlers to be wearing a leg rope attached to their board.
- Paddlers are required to be connected to their craft at all times by leg leash. This increases the capacity of each individual to self-rescue significantly

- Paddlers are encouraged to carry a red or orange flare.
