The annual Pier 2 Pier Paddle Race is right around the corner!
DATE: Saturday, July 26th, 2014
SIGN IN: 7:00-7:45 at the Santa Cruz Wharf (east side of wharf)
START: 8:00 water start
COURSE: Santa Cruz wharf to Capitola Wharf
The annual P2P race is always the Saturday in July that proceeds the annual "Wharf to Wharf" footrace which is always a Sunday. The Pier2Pier, as you might guess, starts at the Santa Cruz pier and finishes at the Capitola pier.
As always, this is a fun race with no organizers, no registration, no liability forms, no sponsors and no schwag. Just paddlers of all types (paddleboards, stand ups boards, outriggers and more) enjoying a fun and friendly race. This is an non-organized race with no water safety, so participate purely at your own risk. The course is generally about 4.6 miles. There is no transportation back to the Santa Cruz wharf, so get a friend to do the paddle with you and drop off one of your cars in Capitola. Alternatively, some have made a tradition of enjoying breakfast in Capitola Village after the paddle, then paddling back to Santa Cruz afterward. Got questions about the race or want to rent a SUP or prone board for the race? - give us a call (831) 600-7230. Have fun out there! Photo credit: Mike Jones - Mostly Paddleboarding
