Norfolk Ocean Challenge | 22 – 26 January 2018

  • A big thank you to Mark Forbes and AOCRA for supporting the NOC and to all our wonderful sponsors who have made this event happen. Without the sponsorship to purchase the canoes, all the bits & pieces plus the freight to get them to Norfolk Island, the NOC would still be a dream. We ask all paddlers, partners, family and friends to support our sponsors and assist in providing them a return on their generous goodwill.

    Event dates for the 2018 NOC - Norfolk Ocean Challenge have been set for 22 - 26 January 2018. Spaces are strictly limited (with only 10 canoes) and will be catering for 10 Mens crews, 10 Womens crews and 10 Mixed crews (with choice of one category only).

    Important Crew information: AOCRA have advised that a crew of 6 to 9 names can be put down as competitors, this way the crews can be mixed up a little and you will also have reserves.
