When you Finish your race:
1st priority= ensure pass through timing flags for accurate finish times
2nd priority= recovery from race
3rd Priority= help others with their skis and load yours/ theirs onto the trailer so it can be taken back to the Start area ready for people to catch ferries back etc.(when trailer is full we will take a small crew of paddlers back in our Mini-Van to unload those boats who can then shower back at start area and head to Scallywags etc for a coffee and a bite to eat (bring some cash/ card for your lunch) it’s also BYO alcohol with meals so potentially plan ahead for that.
This process will happen until all paddlers are finished and Skis back at Nelly Bay.
Leaving Magnetic Island- return Barge trips with ski
We suggest you each stagger your trips to make it easier for the Barge to deal with any walk on skis etc…Your pre-paid ticket/ name will already be with the M.I.F office from us and you would have picked up your ticket on the trip over already. Most people will probably be on a 12pm (faster athletes in a rush) or a 1pm or 2pm Barge (being more social).

Clint Robinson Magnetic Island Camp + Magnetic Mystery Event
The new race Magnetic Mystery June will be part of Clint Robinson clinic weekend. The Magnetic Paddling Camp offers a small group of paddlers a unique opportunity to develop their technique and ocean paddling skills over 3 days. Each paddler will benefit greatly from the time they get to spend on the water with Clint and have the opportunity to understand how to strengthen the key areas of the body with organised cross training activities and flexible exercises. This enables each paddler to not only enjoy their time on the water but help them develop the tools to experience some of ocean paddling’s great events.
