Andrew Mathers

Andrew looks after the recreational portfolio, and has been kayaking on and off for over since he first did the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic in 1981.  He joined Lane Cove River Kayakers and has since become more actively involved in the sport. As a member of Lane Cove he has been mainly involved in marathon kayaking and has paddled in six Hawkesbury Canoe Classics, SA’s Riverland paddle and the Murray Marathon. In 2010, he and five others paddled from Stanley in Tasmania to Blanket Bay in Victoria. Andrew has a Master’s degree in Business & Technology and has been working as a Business Analyst for over nine years. Andrew’s goals include learning to paddle white-water, mastering ocean racing by participating in the Molokai Surf Ski World Championships, getting faster on flatwater and being part of an enthusiastic sub-committee that grows recreational paddling in NSW.
