Chucktown Showdown 2014

Have you ever wanted to paddle through history?

 

On September 13, 2014 you will have that opportunity at the 2nd Annual Chucktown Showdown, presented by The Carolina Paddle Board Co.

 

Your journey will begin as you paddle down the Ashley River along the shores of Charles Towne.  You will follow the tide past Revolutionary War battle sites and will head directly towards Fort Sumter, the location where the Civil War  began. To your left you may spot the USS Yorktown from World War II, and you will circle around Castle Pinckney which was used to protect this Holy City centuries ago.  The finish line will bring you back to modern day Charleston, SC.  Truly a paddle through history!

 

The idea behind the Chucktown Showdown began two years ago when a group of Charlestonian SUP’ers, all from different backgrounds, were connected by Stand Up Paddleboarding...each with a different vision of what they were looking to create.

 

“Let’s have a challenging race course.”

 

“Let’s raise money for charity.”

 

“Let’s have the best SUP event in South Carolina.”

 

“Let’s have a time to reconnect with old friends and meet new.”

 

In 2013 we blended these visions and created something pretty spectacular...the Chucktown Showdown.
