The last three Australia Day’s have seen the success of the Every Man and His Dog SUP Event Watsons Bay. 2017 will be the fourth consecutive year and we are already so excited!
Watson Bay beachfront on Australia Day is now recognised as a day where the surrounding communities, dog owners and elite athletes, come together to celebrate our national day and show appreciation and admiration to the sport of Stand Up Paddling. But most of all to have fun!
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. This is an event for all Australians (including their pooches)! Please see the Race Categories for the descriptions of the individual races.
All of the races have great prizes to be won! We also have random prizes on the day, so you don’t have to win to get some goodies!
For those who haven’t paddled before and would like some practice and tips before Australia Day (don’t worry you have time!) contact us at WATSSUP Watsons Bay Stand Up Paddling to book your training sessions now!
