Paddle Racing on San Rafael Bay

The first race in the 2021 101 Surf Sports Charity Paddle Race was a glorious one. Under blue skies and nearly becalmed waters the fleet gathered to have fun while raising money to fight cancer at the same time.

The day started with a celebration of the River Town Racers recent performance on the world state. You can read more about this amazing group of kids here. We then did a small shout out to all our friends fighting cancer by sending some collective positive energy using the power of the community.

The short course start

Then it was on to racing. Our two mile course that pokes out into San Rafael bay is the perfect race for first time racers. Racers up for a bigger challenge head out to tackle the 6 mile aroud the Marin Islands course. Pictured below the finish line.
