Lobster Sup Cup 2015

Bring Your Claws! The 2015 Lobster SUP CUP will be the third edition of this challenging SUP event in Midcoast Maine. For this year, we have decided to run a rugged, bare bones series of races that are designed to maximize time on the water, challenge, camaraderie and fun. There will be no prize money, winners (top male and female, on either a 12'6" or 14' board, combined time over 3-days and up to 30 miles) will get their names engraved on our new annual trophy. Registration for this year is $20.00 per race (the kids race is free). T/shirts, hats, and food can all be purchased separately. August 7th, 8th, 9th

*** For distance races, paddlers must be experienced in open water conditions, have the stamina to paddle in elevated conditions for up to 12 miles at a time, bring the required equipment (board, paddle, leash, pfd, hydration, energy, appropriate clothing, whistle, and recommended -- waterproofed cell phone), and utilize a touring and/or race board (12'6", 14', or unlimited). Race organizers will screen paddlers and inspect gear. Additionally, we suggest bringing a support person to help with vehicle transport if needed. ***

There is camping close by at Camden Hills State Park, and many lodging options, however, August is the busy season so book early!

For 2015:

3 Distance Races - totaling up to 30 miles, courses will be designed to maximize the weather for each given day. This could include a downwind course if conditions cooperate. Race starts will be in the 10 am - 11 am range each day. Race start locations can include Rockport Harbor and other Midcoast locations. Race 1 day or all 3...
