OY-6 - Le Bons/Akaroa
- Le Bons/Akaroa
- Event Type:
- Peter Cleary
- Trevor Batin
With 6 courses at both events all abilities will be catered for – all welcome.
This will consist of 2 events with a start in the morning at Le Bons Bay, followed by Akaroa in the early afternoon. For those collecting OY points these will be calculated over combined times for both races.
Stage 1. Le Bons: A mixture of open and forested coastal sandunes, parkland, scattered manuka and poplar forest, with expected winning times of a normal park sprint.
Stage 2. Akaroa: A mixture of urban parkland and forest, including the Garden of Tane and Akaroa School, with sprint times for the shorter courses and more like middle length for the longer courses. Elevation gained will be rewarded with fantastic views.
Le Bons start times: 10 – 11.30am (course closure 12 noon)
Akaroa start times: 1 – 2.30pm (course closure 4pm)
Le Bons Event Centre is in the Domain.
Akaroa Event Centre is at Akaroa School. Please note there will be a 500m walk to the start with unmanned road crossings.
For those wishing to head there on Saturday there is a large campground at Okains Bay as well as many other options.
