Just because winter has rolled around doesn’t mean you can’t still sneak out on the water for some fun. Throw on your wetsuits and booties, a wool cap and join us for a winter paddle race in the frigid (hopefully not frozen) waters of Barnegat Bay. A race course around Mordecai Island, either one lap (2 miles) or two laps (4 miles) will test your cold weather paddling prowess. We’ll also have a fun paddle for those not so sure about the temperature.
Race is at Noon – Pearl Street and South Delaware Avenue, Beach Haven, NJ 08008
After the race join us at South End Surf ‘N Paddle (220 S Bay Avenue, Beach Haven, NJ 08008) to warm up and enjoy some chili, hot dogs, hamburgers, and hot beverages
