Mike Eatons La Jolla Cove Paddleboard Race

Eaton Surf & Paddleboards began to support this race back in 2001. When Eaton retired to the Big Island five years ago, he left an endowment behind to let this race continue as it had in the past. There are no big sponsors and no raffle. It is a straight race. You can race solo (three laps around the La Jolla Shores swim buoys) or you can race as a two-person team (one lap each, thus two laps total for team members). There will be nutrition and drinks on the grass at Kellogs Park.

Note: This year there is a surf comp going on at the north side of the beach. Make sure to get there early enough for parking! Sign in will be on the grass at Kellogg Park and the start will be on the beach, near the boat access (south). Beware of divers!

7:00 AM: Sign-up & Day-of Registration 8:00 AM: Solo & Team Start 11:00 AM-ish: Awards (or after the last paddler has made it in and times tallied) Note: the schedule is subject to change!
