On Victoria Day 2020 I launched my paddleboard from Burrard Marina with the goal to visit Wreck Beach and Science World for total tour of 30.7km, 6 hours and 38 minutes.

Along the way I stopped by Jericho Sailing Centre, Spanish Banks, Sunset Beach, Granville Island and other Vancouver sights.

I paddled with my 2017 Red Paddle Explorer 12'6".

Day was just about perfect for this tour, with westerly winds topping at 15kph. Still it was quite a workout to handle the headwinds and crosswinds.

Thanks! It was really nice out on Monday for sure. I was spent by the end of the day. I aimed to achieve 30km by the end of the summer, but seeing I did it already I'll now aim for a marathon 42.2km paddle.
