About the Old Woman Ocean Ski Race
Old Woman Island has long been an iconic land mark of the Sunshine Coast. There are many local legends that attempt to explain the Islands history all of which add to the character and intrigue of the region and the waters off the Sunshine Coast.
Starting at the Mooloolaba Spit, The Old Woman Ocean Ski Race will challenge ski and OC paddlers throughout the 18km journey along the coast line to Mudjimba around Old Woman Island and return whilst SUP and prone board paddlers take on a more suitable 8km course. If either of those options doesn’t fit your paddling interests or ability just yet, join in The Little Woman, a 5km course within the Mooloolaba Beach bay.
Included in the 2022 Australian Ocean Racing Series look forward to challenging yourself against the course and fellow competitors whilst appreciating the ocean, coastal environment and relaxed culture that the Sunshine Coast has to offer as you take on The Old Woman. This paddler and spectator friendly event is a great opportunity to race and relax with the ocean paddling community.Learn More
