Paddle Round the Island 2021

Paddle Round the Island 2021

Period: Jun 5 - Jun 5, 2021
Location: Williamsburg, United States

Sure, paddling against your fellow competitors is fun and exciting, but why not kick it up a notch by racing to beat the changing tides?

Paddle On of Williamsburg presents the first annual Paddle Round the Island Race on June 5, 2021 at Chickahominy Riverfront Park. There will be 2 races: a 7-mile race around Gordon Island (starting at 9 am) and a 2.5-mile race on Gordon Creek (starting at 9:30 am). High-tide for this area is 10:30 am so be ready to tackle those tides!

Note: This is not a closed course, so there could be boat traffic. This beautiful wetland course offers amazing wildlife scenery as well as an athletic challenge. To help support and protect our local wildlife, the proceeds from the race will benefit the Tidewater Wildlife Rescue (a subsidiary of Evelyn's Wildlife Refuge). There will also be a raffle benefiting the organization, and if you bring them some much needed supplies you will earn a raffle ticket!  Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase on race day so don't forget your cash.

This race is open to Paddleboarders and Kayakers of all levels ages 16+. All participants who register before 05/16/21 will receive an awesome T-Shirt! 

The event takes place on the 5th of June, in Williamsburg. For more details, please follow this link.
