The best part about taking part in Dry July is that you’ll be raising funds to improve the comfort, care and wellbeing of cancer patients, their families and carers.

If you do have a drink! you must paddle 5km for every drink you have had or donate $50 for every drink you had.

In 2024, the Viking Challenge is held in July! the heart of Winter because Vikings like it tough. We will paddle our 100km in 7 consecutive days as we all growl all over the Harbour sounding like Pirates but trying to be Vikings ⚔️

If you complete the challenge you will be crowned as a Viking and receive a cool SHSC Viking T shirt.
