First ever SUP Yarra Race Results - Sat 23 July 2011!! 23/7/2011
Well, what a morning it was! Glassy conditions but bitterly cold for the first ever SUP race on the Yarra River! 11 brave souls made the journey down to Boathouse Drive this morning for the 5km paddle from the CBD down to Melbourne High School and back.

A magnificent paddle that took participants past the Botanical Gardens, the mighty MCG, the new AAMI Rugby/Soccer Stadium (nicknamed the Bee Hive - see photos below), Rod Laver Arena and Birrarung Marr.

Congratulations to Jarad Kohlar for taking out the event, with Con Toronis in second (despite battling the flu) and Emma Morris coming in third place and being the first woman over the line! First in the social class was Matt Symonds.
