Races 1 week away

We are very excited to have lots of pre-registrants. Thank you all. We look forward to seeing you next Saturday.

We had fun on Thursday on WTOC's Mid Morning Live again. Thank you, Jody and Tim, for having us and for letting us bring in the NDK Pilgrim Expedition sea kayak (lent by Sea Kayaking USA) for the benefit of viewers.

Remember that you can still get drawing tickets for the Imagine Surf SUP/ kayak crossover and paddle we are giving away during the Award Ceremony after the race. Half-Moon Outfitters (donated the Imagine Surf), Papa's BBQ, and the Tybee Island Marine Science Center all have tickets to sell. Or you can get them the morning of the race at A-J's.

One more reminder: If you want to support the Marine Science Center, but don't care to race, be a casual paddler in the River Race (like a walker in a running race).

See everyone Sept. 7!!!

Thanks, WTOC

Thanks to Jody and Mike on WTOC's Mid Morning Live. We had fun on the show this morning playing show-and-tell with the Imagine Surfer, an SUP/ kayak crossover, that Half-Moon Outfitters donated for part of the drawing at the Awards Ceremony following the 3 Tybee kayak races. The Imagine Surfer is an SUP that you can also use as a sit-on-top kayak. The single blade SUP paddle can convert to a two bladed paddle for kayak use. Very cool. It will be a great prize.
You get a ticket for the SUP/ kayak drawing just for entering a race. You can also buy drawing tickets. They are available at Half-Moon Outfitters on Broughton Street in downtown Savannah, at Papa's BBQ & Seafood on Hwy 80, Whitemarsh Island, and at the Tybee Island Marine Science Center.
Huge thanks to all these businesses for their support.

Less than a month to the Tybee races

Only 3 1/2 weeks left until Sept. 7 when the (rather obnoxious) air horn blows to start the races!!!! There's still plenty of time to get in on early registration.
Looking forward to seeing everyone here.
