Next weekend, Waterborn are hosting the BSUPA National Race Championships on the 12th & 13th October in Kingsbridge, Devon. The Surf and Turf weekend will host 3 different races designed to test paddlers on many aspects of race technique.
The Surf and Turf weekend event has a number of great prizes to be won as well as being a qualifier event for the ISA World Championships.
Below are the race courses that we have to offer with all the necessary information to get you ready and at your best on the day.
The first race held on Saturday 12th is a 5km course and is the qualifying event for those that would like to compete represent Britain at the ISA World Championships. The race has various different categories. However, those wishing to compete to go the World Championships must compete in either the Men or Female OPEN 12’6 class! All other classes e,g Masters, Veterans and 14ft boards will complete the same course but their scores will not qualify to go the Worlds. That said, there is still very much a competition to win the 14ft division, with many entries already.
The 12’6 class will be start slightly earlier than the 14ft to avoid overcrowding and issues of drafting 14ft boards to get an advantage.
Below is the 5km Race Course (World Qualifying course) held on SATURDAY 12th! Racing is set to commence from 10am onwards. Due to the tides it will very strict on the start time.
The second race of the weekend is held on SUNDAY 13th and is the long distance 3 Creeks Adventure Paddle. It is 9km distance.
This course is open to all classes: 14ft, 12’6 and under. It is simply a race to see is the quickest across the line. The first male and female to cross the line will a £500 cash prize each!!
