Cape to Cape Paddle

The Inaugural Cape to Cape Paddle Event benefits the DESATNICK Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed to help those living with Spinal Cord Injury in Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Ocean Counties, New Jersey. Parking will be located at the Cape May Terminal's "Walk On Passenger Lot" on the West side of the CMLF Facility. Participants will load their boards in bags with Ed Miller and SUPRunner trailer. All participants will then walk on the Cape May/Lewes Ferry from New Jersey to Delaware on the first departure at 10:00am. After a 75 minute ride, the ferry will be docked in Lewes.  Racers will be shuttled to the Georgia Avenue entrance in Lewes Beach. Racers will be given a 15-20 minute warm up period and then lined up in coordination to their board classes, and the 16-mile race will begin. Racers will be required to stay in the diamond shape vessel/support boat flotilla for safety concerns.  Because the Cape to Cape Paddle is crossing Shipping Lanes for Cargo, Commercial Fishing and Recreational Boating Areas, there is will be a STRICTLY ENFORCED Four and One Half (4.5) hour cut off for all paddlers. Participants accept a 4.5 Hour Window for the paddle, all racers still on the course after 4.5 hours MUST CONCEDE and board a support vessel. 


  • Paddlers must follow the Baymaster/starter’s instructions. Final start instructions for the Cape to Cape will be communicated formally ten minutes prior to the race start time. 
  • The Baymaster shall be responsible for officiating the event start and finish.
  • Baymaster is the head official for the SUP AC racing event and has the final say in disqualification rulings, finishes and race protest filings.
  • The first heat of the Cape to Cape will start promptly at 1200PM designated start that begins all events.
  • The course is a straight course across the Delaware Bay from Lewes DE to Lower Twp NJ. At no time during the race may a competitor impede another competitor. Unsportsmanlike conduct/actions will result in disqualification. Any competitor failing to round all buoys will be disqualified from the race. Working as a team is what this event is all about.
