Battle on the Blueway: SUP Race Recap

On May 30th in Fort Myers Beach, FL I decided to finally participate in a paddleboard race after 7 months of not racing. The race was called the Battle on the Blueway and attracted over 100 paddlers.

Race Course

I raced in the 7 mile course on my HovieSUP comet and let me tell you… I did not feel ready to take on such a long race just yet but I somehow managed to find some energy from somewhere!

The conditions were pretty flat with some occasional bumps from boats and some wind. It was hot but a beautiful day to be on the water. Overall, a great day for racing.
