Paddle Second Chance

Welcome to Paddle Second Chance 2016
Early Register ($50 now vs.$ 65 latter )  is now open for another Paddle Second Chance (PSC) landmark event of fun racing and fund raising for a worthy cause Operation Second Chance (OSC). OSC is a non-profit group committed to serving our wounded veterans and their families’ recovery and transition back to active duty or civilian life. They truly do amazing work and 91% of the funds raised go directly to wounded veterans and their families. This year we will be opening up the race to Kayak participants, changing up the Elite 5.0 Mile course, beefing up pre-race events at the Starboard and returnig with our signature SUPSquatch team challenge. 

Pre-race activities and Happy Hour are on Friday June 24 2016 at The Starboard in Dewey Beach Delaware. Race day is Saturday June 25th at Holt’s Landing State Park, Millville Delaware featuring our Elite 5.0 and Open 2.5 mile SUP and Kayak race followed by our SUPSquatch Team Relay and Kids SUP race. The day will wrap up with an awards ceremony and community picnic for all those in attendance. 

Think Summer, no snow and it’s never to early to get onboard.

Paddle Second Chance 2015 Recap

This classic post from Chris Campagna a Paddle Second Chance alumni paddler captures the spirit of this years event perfectly:

The game is played outside! and I am pretty sure the fight is taken to the enemy in all weather. So we can show up rain or shine to say thank you, raise a little (or a lot) of money for our veterans and have some paddle fun! Go Operation Second Chance!

Erring on the side of caution we did a lift and shift to Sunday which proved to be the right audible call at the offensive line. We had a great showing with some tough competition against Mother Nature who brought her favorite child the Wind with her to our party!  The day was beautiful, the wind overcome by the determination of our paddlers and fun was had by all on giant SUP boards for Coed Team races and a great downwind for the Kids Paddle. “Fun with Meaning” is what this event is all about and we once again rose to the occasion by raising over $ 25,000 and still counting for our wounded military heroes and their families.

Thank you, stay tuned for cool kid picture coming soon to this site and we look forward to doing this crazy SUP thing again with you next year.
