It is with shock and saddness that we learnt of the tragic drowning death of champion kayaker Susan Quick while paddling on the Blackwood River.

 Susan won her Class in the 2015 Avon Descent.

 The Chairman and members of the Board of Northam’s Avon Descent Association extend their condolences to her family and her partner, Avon Descent Legend Darryl Long.

The Avon Descent is Western Australia’s own unique sporting event that attracts competitors and spectators from throughout Australia and overseas. Competitors challenge the Avon and Swan rivers in a variety of paddle and power craft in an exciting two day time trial over 124 gruelling kilometres.
