(The PDs would all like to give a HUGE thanks to Big Dave and the Cockatoo Cup Committee for organising this fabulous event. There was record participation and this has become one of the most looked-forward-to and enjoyable events on the PD calendar. Well done!!)

Race Report by Big Dave:

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Annual Australia Day Weekend Cockatoo Cupcake Cup.

The CCC Committee had a great day and having so many people racing, helping, cheering and entering the BAKEOFF made it well worth the effort.

An attempt has been made to adjust the results using a very complicated statistical analysis to predict what the times could have been like if the conditions had of been perfect !!

Not a perfect analysis in all cases but an interesting guide all the same.

Congratulations again to all the winners:


BEST DRESSED (or should we say ”best undressed”) – Zeus & Gordy
BAKEOFF– Kitty Kat

And congratulations to the new course record holders:


  1. Zeus and Gordy the 12.1km mens TC2 record
  2. Brendan Murnane the 12.1km mens KAYAK record
