New Dates Announced!
With the week thrown into turmoil of unforeseen obstacles from ex tropical Cyclone Marcia, the 2015 scheduled running of the 12 Towers Ocean Paddle Festival had to be pulled. On the back of professional and stern advice form the authorities of Maritime Services Queensland and Gold Coast City Life Guard Service, safety took precedent with organisers firming that a postponement of the event was imminent.
The 12 T’s committee and some key players in Stand up Paddle QLD have met and discussed new dates for rescheduling the event. Avoiding a clash with other competitions of the same nature, there is only one weekend available between now and July. Organisers agree that holding out longer will tarnish the name and take the shine off the countries “Premier” Paddle Race.
I can confirm the new schedule for the 12 Towers Ocean Paddle Festival will be the Easter Long Weekend of April 3rd – 6th. This will give race organisers a 4 day window of opportunity to hold the main race in the best possible conditions for ocean racing.
The 12 T’s committee sincerely apologise to all competitors and supporters that made the journey to the Gold Coast last week. We trust that you understand the decision made and hoping that you all will return in early April and support the event.
The 12 T’s organisers and committee would like to take this opportunity to thank and show appreciation to our supporters and sponsors.

See you all back on the Gold Coast in April for Australia’s Premier Paddle Race.
