Key West Paddleboard Classic: April 30th – May 3rd
During this ocean paddleboard, racers enjoy a challenging 12-mile course over crystal blue waters, circling Key West through scenic mangroves, passing by the Historic Seaport district and more. The race around Key West is open to paddlers on standup paddleboards, prone boards, outrigger canoes, dory boats, surf skis and kayaks. Other weekend beach and paddling activities are planned.
The course has an “ocean start” though the race start and finish location has been moved down the street so that friends and families can watch the finish in traditional ” beach finish” style! It’s going to be a lot of fun as always.
