Training Techniques and Race Preparation at Smather's Beach


Clinic will focus on basic paddling technique and how to adjust it to best suit your own strengths and weaknesses. We’ll focus on finding the right paddling “gear” to suit your ability and the type of race you’re doing. 

If water conditions are suitable we’ll focus on drafting and practice in small groups on both the back and, if time permits, the side wave. If water conditions are too rough we’ll focus on how to maintain good paddling rhythm in waves and using what the waves have to offer to your advantage.

There will be an opportunity discuss anything thing related to training and racing.

Note: All live times are unadjusted and unofficial.

Meet at Lazy Dog by 7:30/8 am!  Race starts promptly at 8:30am!  Racers will paddle out
 Hurricane Hole Marina for a water start, next will round a buoy (left side buoy turn) to enter the cow key channel, paddle down about a half a mile to the next buoy turn ( this time it's a right side buoy turn) thus entering the Rivieria canal ( approximately 2.5 miles) where the canal narrows toward the end making for a fun competition just before entering the Gulf of Mexico where the watery road opens up for paddlers to take all the space they need as they continue with the longest leg of the course (roughly 3.5 miles).  There will be a little bit of a surprise as you enter the last mile!!!!!! Paddlers will finish at the mouth of the Hurricane Hole (water finish) to tell their tales of their journey over refreshments!
