GET YOUR PADDLE ON!
It's St. Patrick's Day weekend and there's no better time to put in some time on the water in the South Carolina Lowcountry. Come join us at Broad Creek Marina, 18 Simmons Road (off of Marshland Rd.), Hilton Head Island, SC 29926 for Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) and Kayak races!
There's a race to keep everybody stoked!
WHAT's ON TAP: For the SUP'ers, we've got a 1 mile kids race, a 3 mile race, and a 6 mile race. For the Kayak'ers, there's a 3 mile race.
RACE DIVISIONS & DISTANCES:
----On the SUP side, there are the following race divisions:
----6 Mile: Male & Female Unlimited (Over 14')
----3 & 6 Mile: Male & Female 14' Race, 12'6" Race, and 12'6" & Under Recreational
----3 Mile Kayak: Male & Female Recreational/Touring & "Race Design"
--The races begin at 1:00 pm with an in water start. The kids (12 & under) will go off first for a 1 mile out & back paddle.
--As soon as possible, after the kid's race, all other SUP races will start. The Kayak Races begin 15 minutes after the SUP races go off.
RACE COURSE/ON THE CREEK:
--The kid's race and the 3 mile races are out and back to a turn buoy.
--The 6 mile races will travel to the "end" of Broad Creek, make the Old Oyster Factory loop, and head back to Broad Creek Marina.
--Racers will initially paddle into the falling tide but will get to ride it back!
--All pre-registered by March 5, 2014 will receive a race shirt, kids included. We cannot guarantee size or availability after that date...though we will try!
--The first 10 registered for one of the 6 mile races will receive a free hoodie. If you are not racing a 6 mile race or are not one of the first 10, you can still purchase a hoodie for $25. It'll be an option during the registration process. (When we hit 10 registered to get the hoodies, we'll send e-mails to those 10 and we'll post on this page that the freebie hoodies are no longer!)
--Top 3 Male & Female overall in each "adult" division
--First in each age group, 10 year increments beginning with 20 so 20-29, 30-39....though 13-19 will be the first "age group"
--The kids race is not scored. All kids will receive a finisher's award.
--Awards will be given out as soon as possible after the races but we'll be having a post race get together at UP The Creek..so don't plan on running off. (Awards will not be mailed!)
--We can always use volunteer in a variety of capacities. If you know of someone interetsed in helping out, either on or off of the water, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll have some schwag for them.
