Lion Island Challenge


The Lion Island Challenge is one of this country’s premier ocean races with categories for ocean racing and spec skis, outrigger canoes and stand up paddleboards.  It has two competitive courses – 14km and 8km which take in some of the most spectacular coastline Sydney has to offer.  The race starts from the Pittwater side of Palm Beach, travels around the spectacular Barrenjoey headland to the southern end of Palm Beach (kiddie’s corner) and then returns around Lion Island in Broken Bay.

Avalon Beach SLSC has now successfully run the event for 12 years.
