The Shaw and Partners Doctor is a 27-kilometre paddle race from Rottnest Island to Sorrento Beach. It’s expected to attract 450 competitors from around Australia as well as South Africa, America, England, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Portugal, most of whom will compete on surf skis, Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP), outrigger canoes and prone paddleboards.
It’s the biggest open water surf ski race in the world and the richest. A new initiative this year is the Shaw and Partners WA Race Week, a series of five ocean paddle races surrounding the iconic Doctor Surf Ski Race.
Perth has prime conditions for paddling and especially downwind racing thanks to the consistent wind, the ‘Fremantle Doctor’ which the main race is named after.
Shaw and Partners WA Race Week starts with the Fenn West Coast Downwind followed by the Ben Hewitt Sunset Surf Ski Series Race 1 and Race 2, the Shaw and Partners Dash for Cash before the pinnacle event, the Shaw and Partners Doctor.
