1st Annual Spurwink River Challenge on Saturday 23rd

Ok, so next year we'll have a snazzy logo, posters, killer swag and prizes, and possibly even a real, live pig-roast...but who wants to wait until next year!? Get down to the Spurwink River boat launch off Rte 77 on Saturday morning and paddle to the sea and back for fun and fame (and a t-shirt if you finish in the top 3). Bring a board, a paddle and a pfd (you don't have to wear it, just have it strapped on board).

This race is open to anyone and everyone. We will start at 10am. Low tide is at 11:30, so it will be fast and easy getting down to Higgins to grab your flag, but paddling back will be much harder, and you will probably have to portage over at least a couple sand bars.

I advise dropping off boards at 9:30, then parking along the road on 77 to avoid getting a ticket. The Scarborough police are making sure the access to the launch point is clear, so don't block it.

Battle of the Paddle, Spurwink style
