September News and Events

September 18, 2014

Good Afternoon:

It’s Thursday and what’s happening this weekend is the 4th Annual Battle of the Bay Paddle Race. The Battle of the Bay will be testing out its new venue at East Beach on Crissy Field in the Presidio National Park of San Francisco. This will be a fabulous weekend of racing in the City by The Bay. Weekend weather is suppose to be classic San Francisco fall weather with some morning fog giving way to sunny in the 70’s afternoons. Online registration is closing tonight so if you want to save some money on your race entry register today

And on the casual paddle side of things, check out the Indian Summer Raft Up happening late Saturday afternoon with the Barbary Ghost out at Marin Islands.  All starts at 5:30 with a leisurely paddle from Loch Lomond Marina out to the Marin Islands where the Barbary Ghost will be anchored. Sounds pretty fun!

Cannot forget to talk about the epic Tahoe Fall Classic Paddle Race last weekend on Lake Tahoe. The race or lets call it a crossing was from  South Lake to North Lake Tahoe and covered the complete 22 miles end to end of Lake Tahoe. Congrats go to NorCal paddlers Jay Wild (Mens Elite Winner) and Ben Sarrazin (2nd place Elite) and for the ladies Jen Fuller took first place for the Elite Woman followed by Nina Oakley in 2nd and Wendy Ackerman in 3rd. Complete story on the Fall Classic is here. If you don’t want to read and just see a video recap then click here.

Hope to see everyone at the Battle of the Bay this weekend!

Keep paddling!
