Wednesday Nite Fun Races

Wednesday Nite Fun Races - 6pm - 8pm (June - Early August)

 

Beginning the first Wednesday of June, we resume our popular racing series. Part race, part party, it's a wonderful way to get some exercise, meet fellow paddlers, win prizes, and enjoy delicious hot dogs and refreshments.  The race is a two-mile time trial - we start you individually (when you are ready), instead of en masse.   You may start anytime between 6pm and 7pm. Your race begins at our docks and proceeds 1/2 mile out from the channel towards the bay until you reach the first buoy turn.  Then you return and continue past our dock where we give you your half-way split time. You then continue up the creek for another 1/2 mile.  At that point, you round another buoy and head for the finish line back at our docks.

 

We reward new personal records (PR's), so you are just racing against yourself, trying to better your time. The current solo kayak record is 13.95 minutes, set 2010 by Jason Quagliata, but most of us take 20 to 30 minutes to do the course.  The cost is only $8.00 per person and if you need to rent a boat it costs only $7.00 more!  Canoes, kayaks, surf skis and SUPs are all welcome.

 

Start Time:

  • Anytime between 6pm and 7pm.

 

Awards:
