Deep South Downwind


Dec 09


Lake Wakatipu/Queenstown


Southern Lakes Multisport Club

Running its inaugural event last summer, this event proved to be one not to miss for both the spectacular paddling and the Southland hospitality!

Hosted by the Southern Lakes Multisport Club on Saturday 9th December, Queenstown and the surrounding mountains present a spectacular backdrop as paddlers hope to make the most of the summer thermal winds on Lake Wakatipu. The race start location will be determined based on the wind conditions, with a spectacular Lake Whakatipu course taking in 25km of dramatic downwind paddling.  

This will be the 3rd race in the 2023/24 Darcy Price Series and is open to Ocean Ski/surfski, Waka Ama & SUP. 

Join us this summer for an epic weekend in the heart of adventure-junkie paradise.
