Every Man and His Dog will not be running for Australia Day 2020.
We apologise for any disappointment this may cause. It was not an easy decision but unfortunately we do not have the manpower for the event this year. However we will be marking Australia Day 2020 by hosting a mystery paddle! We will be departing from Watsons Bay at 8.00am on Sunday 26th January and paddling to a ‘mystery-location’ which will be revealed on the day. Refreshments will be included in the booking price of $50pp and the adventure will run until 10.00am. Book your spot on our mystery paddle here.
Again we are sad not to be hosting the Every Man and His Dog This Year and we appreciate everyone’s support for the event in the previous years. But we do intend to host another Every Man and His Dog in the future so you and your pooch will paddle again!
This event is run and hosted by WATSSUP Watsons Bay Stand Up Paddling . WATSSUP are paddleboard and fitness enthusiasts, an ASI accredited Stand Up Paddle School based in Watsons Bay, an integrated part of the Eastern Suburbs community; owned by Mermaid Joanna Kyriazakos and Bondi Rescue’s Lifeguard Terry McDermott.
Every Man and His Dog is a Stand Up Paddle event on Australia Day that is made up of several SUP races in which participants will compete based on their level and skill in Stand Up Paddling. There will be different courses located within Watsons Bay as well as a more challenging long distance race for the more elite paddlers. This event does not only attracts athletes, but local families and visitors who have a chance to compete in the more basic SUP courses and individuals with their dogs who participate in the iconic novelty, man and dog races. Come spectate, browse through our market stalls or even better still, gather your mates, family and even your work colleagues and form a team for our SUP Team Relay! There’s a race for everyone and every pooch! Please see the Race Categories for the descriptions of the individual races.
