Solid gold for the winner; free beer for the mob - that's how Byron Bay attracts paddlers to their event...!

(Just kidding - it sounds as though they've got an awesome line-up for this year's BB Ocean Paddle.)

With 20 Beaches down, and having just smashed myself for close to 2 hours into a slight headwind, it was with great relief that I caught a small wave into the finish line of the Epic Kayaks 20 Beaches Classic.  A huge crowd had assembled on a perfect summer's day at Shelley Beach, with the pile of skis starting to grow as more and more paddlers crossed the finish line.  Hardly able to walk, I looked up to see my girlfriend greet me with a massive smile.  "He's done it! Murray's won!" she yelled at me.  It took a minute to register; my ‘little' brother had just won the biggest ski race on the east coast of Australia, ahead of one of the hottest fields ever assembled in the country.  Pretty impressive for a 22 year old who less than 12 months ago was in hospital recovering from life-threatening surgery.

Those of us in Sydney who weren't fortunate enough to be at the Dubai Shamaal were given a taste of similar conditions last weekend at the Manly Wharf Hotel King of the Harbour.  From the three false starts, to the dry heat and beating sun with little to no assistance from either wind or swell, the guys who had arrived home from Dubai this week all said the same thing "wow, that was just like the Shamaal".  And of course, the final consistency was the winner - Tim Jacobs.
