Cape to Cape Paddle (DE to NJ)

July 1, 2018

The Inaugural Cape to Cape Paddle Event benefits the DESATNICK Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed to help those living with Spinal Cord Injury in Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Ocean Counties, New Jersey. Parking will be located at the Cape May Terminal’s “Walk On Passenger Lot” on the West side of the CMLF Facility. Participants will load their boards in bags with Ed Miller and SUPRunner trailer. All participants will then walk on the Cape May/Lewes Ferry from New Jersey to Delaware on the first departure at 10:00am. After a 75 minute ride, the ferry will be docked in Lewes.  Racers will be shuttled to the Georgia Avenue entrance in Lewes Beach. Racers will be given a 15-20 minute warm up period and then lined up in coordination to their board classes, and the 16-mile race will begin. Racers will be required to stay in the diamond shape vessel/support boat flotilla for safety concerns.  Because the Cape to Cape Paddle is crossing Shipping Lanes for Cargo, Commercial Fishing and Recreational Boating Areas, there is will be a STRICTLY ENFORCED Four and One Half (4.5) hour cut off for all paddlers. Participants accept a 4.5 Hour Window for the paddle, all racers still on the course after 4.5 hours MUST CONCEDE and board a support vessel.

Previous Race Participants who finished in the allotted time in the previous year have registration priority until May 15th then a few spots open for OC, Surfski, Prone and SUP.

This is not a normal event that you can just register for. You need to contact the race directors, apply with race results and bio. It’s not an easy race. You have to be self-sufficient and can follow the rules and instructions. The race travels through international shipping lanes and when a safety boat says stop, you stop. Get it?
