Australia’s Largest Outrigging Event

16 – 19 June 2011

Paddling enthusiasts from Australia and overseas join in three days of challenging racing during the annual Hamilton Cup, held each June. One of the toughest outrigger canoe racing events in the world, the Cup features more than 100 sprint and
medium-distance races, plus demanding 16-kilometre marathons.

The main event is the 42-kilometre marathon Hamilton Cup, an impressive sight for spectators as the canoes circle Hamilton Island and race through the Whitsundays.
