Imagine passing 124 km through the farming regions of historic Northam and Toodyay, forested national parks, steep gorges, the Swan Valley vineyard region and eventually into the tidal waters of the upper Swan River.  This is a unique race with a promise that no two paddle strokes will be the same.
