New raced called the SEVENTY48 in WA
« on: November 16, 2017, 06:23:41 PM »
Similar to the "Race To Alaska" event, this one starts in Tacoma WA.  Basically, it's open to all non motorized craft. http://distressedmullet.com/2017/11/16/news-release-r2ak-sparks-new-contest/

With the dwindling # of SUP races it's good to see a new one pop up even if it's not SUP specific.

Stoked. We have a posse of paddlers in Ballard working out together and getting ready for this epic race. 

Going to be a fun mix of everything you know - downwind hopefully, navigation, racing, endurance, reading water, race strategy, rough water, camping, board outfitting..

fyi, races in the Pacific NW are not dwindling, but rather building sup and non sup specific.

Good to hear.
