Paddle Second Chance’s 2016 event will feature an Elite 5.0 and an Open 2.5 mile long SUP and Kayak race course. Following the main races, we will have a short Kid’s SUP Fun Race and a Coed Team Race for SUPSquatch bragging rights. Whether this is your first race or you are a seasoned paddler, this is a great chance to come together for a wonderful cause and have a fun time on land and in the water. The race takes place at Holts Landing State Park in Millville, DE on the beautiful Indian River Bay. This venue is ideal for SUP and Kayak racing as the water depth is shallow (less than 4 feet) and is spectator friendly so make sure you bring your family and friends! The race will feature the following divisions and board classes.
- Elite 5.0 mile course- 14′ SUP Men
- Elite 5.0 mile course-12’6″ SUP Men
