Savannah, Here We Come!?!

Well, it looks like the promise of waves has been delayed a day or two so, Savannah, here we come! I think we will have a good crew going down for the SUP Splash race on Saturday, August 20 at 1:00. Hope you can join us!

For something a little slower paced, come out to the Social Paddle on Wednesday at Brittlebank. Please RSVP on the meetup so we know you are coming.

Halfmoon Race Series and the Golden Nugget

The last Shem Creek race on Tuesday ended with a blowout. The conditions at the race were described by one racer as "hands down as challenging an hour of paddling I've endured in 3 plus years.  Chop/surf, wind, sprints..." it was awesome. Congratulations to Jeremy Whitted for finishing first (on a 12'6"). He killed it!

Thank you to Halfmoon Outfitters for sponsoring another super fun series--we look forward to next year and more immediately the Golden Nugget.

Everyone, mark your calendars for October 16 at 4pm for the Nugget. Last year the prizes and party were awesome and this year promises to be even bigger. This is a partner event with Mount Pleasant Land Conservancy. There will be a band, food, drinks, auction and tons of fun and most importantly will benefit the places that we love to paddle. More details to come.
Get out and enjoy the full moon and check out all of the other fun events coming up. Hope to see you on the water!
