Polar Paddle AND After-Party Potluck (suggested but not required to bring something)
Just because winter has rolled around doesn’t mean you can’t still sneak out on the water for some fun. Throw on your wetsuits and booties, a wool cap and join us for a winter paddle race in the frigid (hopefully not frozen) waters of Barnegat Bay.
After the race join us at the shop to warm up and enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, hot beverages, and the award ceremony. Please email Sheryl @ firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you are able to bring something for lunch or a snack.
Pre-register online and your race packet will be waiting. All you have to do is sign the form and pay and you are all set. On race day, registration occurs at South End Surf N Paddle @ 220 S Bay Ave, Beach Haven, NJ starting at 11 am.
Race is at Noon one block over. An easy walk. There is plenty of parking at both at the shop and at the race start.
If the bay is too frozen then race will be postponed until sometime in late March. When you pre-register you don’t pay until race day / no obligation if you can’t make alternate date. But we are still hoping for Sat, February 2nd to work!
Check South End Surf N Paddle’s website and Facebook leading up to the event for up to date information and any adjustments to the race and to keep up with all of our shop events!
