2003
Gold Coast Cup
Outrigger Canoe Ultra Marathon
Northcliffe Outrigger Canoe Club takes great pride and pleasure in inviting members from your club to compete
in the Annual 48 km Gold Coast Cup. We have a new event this year – an Iron Race which is approximately 40
km. Held on Saturday 5 April 2003.
Saturday morning courtesy buses will be available ONLY for paddlers who are staying at Sea World Nara
Resort to depart from Sea World Nara Resort to take you to Greenmount for the start of the Gold Coast Cup ultra
marathon. Departure time will be posted at Friday night’s briefing and at Reception.
Saturday morning showcases the Gold Coast Cup ultra marathon OC6 (9 men, 10 women) changeover race and
OC6 (6 men/women) iron race. This race is set up to maximise the best paddling conditions available. The
forecasted weather will play a major role in determining which end of the coast the Cup will start from. Canoes will
be set up on beautiful Greenmount Beach, at the southern end of the Gold Coast for a start time of 8.30am.
Lined up for the start off Greenmount point, change race crews race south to the first changeover point off Cook
Island, then north along the spectacular Gold Coast beach line past Surfers Paradise to the Gold Coast Sea way.
Through the Sea way into the Broad water, for a flat-water dash to the finish line at the Southport Spit.

If the forecast conditions do not suit a Greenmount Beach start then the course will be reversed with a start at the
Southport Spit.
We look forward to seeing you on the Gold Coast and experiencing Australia’s premier outrigger canoe ultra
marathon, the 7th Annual Gold Coast Cup.
