Cape to Cape Paddle 2017

The 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. After a 75 minute ride, the ferry will be docked in Lewes.  Racers will assemble their equipment and launch their vessel from the public dock located on the east side of the terminal. Racers will be given a 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 inside 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. When agreeing to the rules of the event, Participants accept a 4.5 Hour Window for the paddle.  Regardless of position on the course, ALL RACERS MUST CONCEDE AFTER 4.5 HOURS AND BOARD A VESSEL.
