Carnivals begin in 1 month, so time to get training. Board training is underway from 6-7am on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Water this morning was a beautiful 31 degrees (this may be a typo, definitely wear a wetsuit).
Sydney Water carnivals are on 27 October, 3 and 24 November, and 1 December with venues around the Illawarra to be announced. These carnivals are a good test against competitors from the Illawarra and Sydney, and are for Nippers, Seniors and Masters competitors.
