Bay Bridge Paddle
June 1, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT
Water enthusiasts of all ages and expertise are invited to join us at the Bay Bridge Paddle, open to Stand Up Paddleboards, Kayaks and other paddle craft. There are 3 levels of racing – Recreational, Intermediate, and Elite. Paddling any part of the Chesapeake Bay waters is a thrilling experience and launching from Sandy Point State Park is no different. With a beautiful sandy beach on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, you are provided with expansive views overlooking the Bay Bridge. This race will bring together all levels of paddlers to share in a day of camaraderie and fellowship. Each race will present a different experience and challenge, the bay’s shifting conditions add to the fun as racers can experience anything from flat water glides to gusty winds and unpredictable swell and tides from the wind and current. The Elite Crossing will challenge racers with a high level of fitness and paddling experience; racers with less experience or conditioning can enjoy the Intermediate Paddle or the Recreational course closer to shore. In addition to these races, there will be other memorable events to entertain everyone, and with the generous backing of our sponsors, there will be prizes and cash awarded!
