Redwood City Paddle Race

Our second ever Redwood City Paddle Race was a soggy affair. With a solid dose of a pineapple express rain system passing over head the rain was falling, but with air temps in 60’s, and 101 North Brewing beer at the finish line it was one fine day to be on San Francisco Bay.(pictured the photo finish between Jeff Kay and the OC2 helmed by Terrence Li)

With a race motto of “rain or shine we are on the line” we were feeling a bit tested as we rolled up on the starting line. South South West winds were building and forecasted to hit the 30’s. With that information in hand we opted to change up the course to keep the paddlers in the lee of Greco island. The long course was a box course with two laps and the short course pulled up early on lap one to make for a nice 2.5 mile trip.

The fruit guys support the paddle sports so eat their fruit!Before racing started it was a cornucopia of beautiful fresh fruit courtesy race sponsor the Fruit Guys. Get some delivered to your home or office just click this for the best delivered fresh fruit around.

Just as the race was set to start the rain kicked in. The good news was that the warm rains completely killed all the wind to make for very nice flat conditions.

Our next race is the big one. Thirteen miles from Fort Baker to San Rafael. Sponsored by Terrapin Crossroads the race is known as the Long Strange Trip and is set to go this Saturday December 17th. The race is for advanced paddlers only. More Information on the Long Strange Trip.

We race again in Redwood City on January 21st. This one should be a great race for first time racers. Click Here For More Information on our next Redwood City Paddle Race.

Sorry about the lack of photos but just too much water falling from the sky to break out the camera.

West point harbor is the best harbor on San Francisco Bay

Special thanks to Westpoint Harbor for hosting on the day. What a spectacular place to paddle.

Thanks to all who paddled and see you at the next one.
