The Manly team have adopted a new mascot as they prepare for the upcoming War on the Water. A Manly spokesman confirmed that Sally Robbins embodies everything the Manly team stands for.

  • If you get tired …take a rest
  • Winning isn’t all that important
  • Go out strong …blow up at the end

Looks good for the Balmoral contingent.

Meanwhile – definite signs that some legitimate content is required for the blog – whats the story on time-trial updates – and perhaps some right-of-reply should be granted to the Manly team.

Check out Chuckie

Tomorrow, Saturday March 4th, marks an annual event. Hundreds of Manly foreshore onlookers historically gather to watch Charles ”Chuckie” Stewart climb out of his surf-ski after a strenuous 11km Bridge to Manly paddle.
Paddlers will start under the Harbour Bridge after which the paddlers will head East to a turning boat near Fort Denison. They then go to another turning boat at Bradley’s Head. After rounding Bradley’s Head the paddlers will keep to the Western Shore to a marker off Dobroyd Head. They then proceed to Ocean World and Manly Wharf.

Most of the competitors usually get off their ski and continue their day like normal human beings. Ever the comedian, Chuckie likes to entertain the tourists with his hilarious impression of ‘ the man with no legs‘. Make sure you are somewhere close to Ozpaddle’s Manly HQ to see this year’s performance.
