It was a massive start of the world championships in Tasmania, when around 160 kayaks took off from the beach with a 20 km stretch in the ocean. 20 km of trekking followed the kayaking which lead towards a cold and wet cave. The first section was quite easy, along a route that was done for tourist, it then continue down to the wet and narrow sections of the cave system. Some of the teams were done quickly in the caves and where able to rest a few minutes since it was mandatory to be in the cave system 1 hour.
