This Australia Day annual event will see paddlers and pooches hit the beach in Watsons Bay for a day of fun races and activities. 

The Every Man and His Dog stand-up paddle race event is open to all including those without a four-legged friend.
Categories will include Sprint, Long Distance, Dash for Cash, Kids SUP (Under 13s and Under 18s) and Man and Dog races – paddle with your pooch.

The event is open to all including those without a four-legged friend as well as those without a paddleboard: it can be hired on the day!
You don’t even have to participate... If you’re like us, you’re likely to be taking happy snaps from the shore to share on Instagram as you don't see dogs on paddleboards every day!
