This is a new paddle on our itinary. Starting from Deerubbun Reserve we will track direct for Rocky Ponds. We will have a runout tide for both the outgoing leg and return leg under the railway bridge. The flow rates should be readily manageable.
If the wind picks up earlier than expected we will track to the lee of the southern bank of the river.
