The 20 Beaches Ocean Classic is one of the most iconic Ocean Paddling races in Australia since first held in 1990 and run by the Manly Warringah Kayak Club. Traditionally raced from Manly to Palm Beach in a Southerly or Palm Beach to Manly in a North Easterly, the 20 Beaches Ocean Classic has attracted the cream of Australia’s best Ocean Paddlers, who vie to hold up the coveted Steve Wood Trophy. The Steve Wood Trophy is decorated with some of the legends of our sport who have dominated this race including, Dean Gardiner (1990,1992), Tim Jacobs (2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2010, 2013) Jeremy Cotter (2007, 2009, 2013), Murray Stewart (2008, 2012) & Clint Robinson (2011). Beyond the leading pack of competitors, the 20 Beaches Ocean Classic always provides a fantastic opportunity for paddlers to test their Ocean Racing skills on the challenging point-to-point racetrack.
