Triple gold medal-winning kayaker Curtis McGrath's third and final Paralympics could be his most difficult depending on conditions at the Paris course next year.
The Vaires-sur-Marne Nautical Stadium, which opened in 2019, will host both the canoe/kayak sprint and rowing at both the Paralympics and Olympics, with canoe/kayak slalom also contested at the latter.
The former soldier, who lost his legs while serving in Afghanistan in 2012, will look to continue his domination in the men's KL2 event, winning gold in both Tokyo and Rio.
The 35-year-old will also defend his Paralympic title in the VL3 va'a outrigger event, which was introduced at the Japan Games.
McGrath, who has been named Australia's Paralympics team captain along with track and field athlete Angela Ballard, competed in the Paris test event at the venue earlier this year and said that a crosswind could prove to be tricky for paddlers.
"We got a good little preview of what to expect, the conditions, what the water is like - that sort of thing to help us manage and lay out a plan of attack," McGrath told AAP.
"There's a certain prevailing wind on that course ... it's going to come from the right side behind us if it's there but hopefully it's not.
"It's on an angle that pushes the back of the boat around so it's going to be a little bit bumpy in places especially in the outrigger canoes, the V ones are going to have a bit more of a problem in the wind."
Despite the conditions, world champion McGrath triumphed in his pet event, raced over 200 metres, although bombed in the outrigger.
"In the kayak, I went really well but I actually tried something very different than the outrigger canoe and failed miserably," he said.
"I tried a different style of paddle and it didn't work out well for me.
"It was the only opportunity I had really to test it in an international event that didn't really matter so it was nice to have that opportunity, but it didn't go as well as I expected."
He said he was currently spending more time in the outrigger to turn his world championship bronze into another Paralympic gold medal.
McGrath will take a short holiday before ramping up his training for the Oceania qualification event in Sydney in mid-February, where paddlers for the Para and Olympic Games will be decided.
