Race Results Posted

Race Results are posted. Again, congratulations to the winners!  And congratulations to all who raced! Thanks to returning racers - please keep coming back. And thanks to first timers - hope you'll come again next year.

The winner of the drawing for the Imagine Surfer SUP/ kayak crossover donated by Half-Moon Outfitters is Karla Deal!! Karla bought the winning ticket at A-J's the morning of the race. She is from Nashville and was down visiting her sister, one of the Tybee Spades Girls, a Gold sponsor with an entry in the Race Across the River. They came to cheer for their racer and Karla said she "had a feeling about winning the board".
Congratulations, Karla!!! Enjoy your prize!

Don't forget about upcoming races. Next in the Southeast Paddlesports Series is Paddlefest 2013, Saturday, November 2 at 10 a.m., Hunting Island State Park, SC.   Proceeds from this race go to Friends of Hunting Island State Park. Another chance to paddle in a beautiful place for a great cause!!!

Race is Saturday!!!

Hi Everyone,
A couple of points people have been asking about that I want to clarify.
Registration and sign in for both races is 8 - 8:45 a.m. Allow time for unloading and for parking. We will have someone directing parking, but it can be tight. Some parking is free; some not.
You have to have signed in by 8:45 even if you pre-registered. After registration closes, there will be a safety briefing that you must attend.
Then it's on-water time :)
River Race will start about 9 and the Little Tybee Challenge about 9:15.
Very excited about all the participants. Thank you all.
See you Saturday.
