Sharpies take out the 2011 Cock of the Canning
The 2011 Cock of the Canning hosted by the Shelley Sailing Club saw the Lightweight Sharpie “Road Kill” WA 803 a clear winner. The annual event which was held on 20 March showcases a mixed fleet of boats racing from the club located on the Canning River in Perth’s southern suburbs downriver to the Mount Henry Bridge and then back upriver to the Shelley Bridge and return.... The event is quite a challenge as the river is at times narrow and with a few twists and turns and in places there are rows of posts running down the centre of the river that were put in using convict labour to hold back the silt for the first hand dug channel.
