The Palmy Classic 2014

This year’s Mango Racing Palmy Classic was the biggest and best so far with over $15,000 worth of cash, craft and other prizes up for grabs. Now in the third year since its inception, the total competitor numbers have risen to well over 300 spread over two days of competion.

The quality was also exceptionally high with Nutri-Grain Ironwomen champions Liz Pluimers and Tara Coleman battling it out with many other top levels girls for the honours in their race, whilst several local young rising stars faught it out with some experieced masters in the men’s race.

The Ocean Swim and Beach races were held on the Saturday and the Endurance Ironman on the Sunday. A classic North Queensland winter morning with sunshine and warm water was the perfect setting for the Ironman Race, which started with a 9km paddle around the islands off Palm Cove. Total race distance was 21km, finishing with a 4km beach run to the Cairns Surf Club.

Liz Pluimers had a comfortable win in the open ladies race, whilst yound local Max Fifield took out the open mens. Ten teams also took part in the race including competiors from 10 years old to over 60, and they all cannot wait to return to do it all again in 2015.

Tropical North Queensland sees the launch of the new Mango Racing Skis

Cairns Surf Lifesaving Club senior presentation night was held on Sat Nov 10th at the impressive new Palm Cove club house to finish off another year of spectacular success by the club.

A perfect safety record on the beach was capped off by taking out the title of Top Club in North Australia for the 4th year running and Masters Champions for the 12th time. Major club sponsors were entertained including Mr Mango of Mango Racing who pledged his support for another 5 years.

On Sunday morning the two newest and most exciting offering from the Mango Racing stable were rolled out over the golden Palm Cove sands. The Black Knight X Ocean Racer and the Waverider 2 surf spec ski hit the water with an excited crowd and a line of paddlers eager to test them out.

No one was failed to be impressed with the quality of the build and performance on the water. The Waverider 2 has a excellent balance of speed, stability and maneuverability. Lengthy design work has gone into the adjustable steering system, which has resulted in the best set up in the business. It turns just like a fived length ski and will accommodate any sized paddler whilst being fully approved for racing by the Surf Lifesaving Association of Australia.

The cut-away section along the seat-well is a masterstroke allowing optimum blade catch and leverage through the stroke. Combine this with a specially designed hull that gives speed, slide and glide, and you have the very latest in spec ski technology.

The WR2 was thoroughly put through its paces on a 15km downwind paddle in very demanding conditions.  It picked up runs of all shapes size with ease and held them exceptionally well. Control was never and issue and not a single run was lost in 90 minutes of hectic, high speed ocean paddling.

Mango Racing Waverider 2 – the next step in the evolution of the racing ski.

The Black Knight X was also put through its paces by a host of paddlers and the verdict was another winner from the Mango Racing design team. The way this Kayak slices through the water whilst barely disturbing the surface has to be experienced to be believed. The sleek design catches the eye of paddlers and non-paddlers alike and the performance on the water does not disappoint.

Available in a range of weights, the full carbon 8.6kg model is set to become a class leader.

Positive feedback flowed throughout the launch and the Cairns paddling community has been left with a buzz. There is nothing mediocre about these new craft and Mango has just raised the bar.
