Treasure Island Pirate Paddle III 2017

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Treasure Island Pirate Paddle. For the third consecutive year this SUP & Prone race will take place on the beautiful Manasquan River along the shores of Point Pleasant, Brielle, Brick, and Wall Township. For 2017 the event will feature several races; a 7-Mile Elite WPA sanctioned (points) race, a 2-Mile Recreational Race, a 1/2-Mile Kid's race, and a Team Relay Race. Directly following the last race there will be awards at Riverfront Park (weather permitting) and an after-party at the brand new Half Moon Point restaurant nearby. Please note that this is not a tax-deductible donation, however net proceeds will be donated to benefit The St. Peter School, a local K through 8 school in nearby Point Pleasant Beach. 

Some Important Information:
There will be no onsite race-day regisration. Pre-registration is required. This will eliminate delays and confusion on the morning of the race. The event will launch out of Riverfront Park in Point Pleasant. There are bathroom facilities and parking on the premises and along the street. This will be a WPA sanctioned points race. All WPA racing rules and regulations will apply. 

New WPA Safety Regulations for 2017: 
All paddlers 14 and over must wear a USCG approved type III PFD or have one attached to their board. Leashes will be required for all SUP paddlers per the latest WPA regulations. All children 13 and under must wear a vest type PFD and use a leash. No exceptions. This year we will also be enforcing a time limit for each race. Racers that have not crossed the finish line by the time limit will be required to board a support vessel. 

Due to one minor channel that needs to be crossed at the very beginning of the course, the race directors have decided to use a "beach" start for each race. Before the start of the race, each racer will cross the channel and line up along the east facing shore of Treasure Island. Therefore, at the start of the race there will be no channel crossing required. 
Registration is non-refundable and non-transferable. Event will proceed rain or shine unless conditions are deemed unsafe by the Race Committee.

Special Note on Parking:
Riverfront Park is located along the Manasquan River in Point Pleasant, but it is also adjacent to a residential neighborhood to the south and west. Along the east side is a multi-family residential complex. The town has asked that the participants of this event take special care in respecting the properties of the surrounding neighborhood. There are limited parking spaces on the Riverfront Park site, therefore this event will also require some on-street parking. Please respect property owner's driveway access and municipality parking regulations. 
Also, upon entering the parking area, please enter on the left hand side, drop off your equipment, and exit on the right. Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation. 

A Word on Safety:
We are taking every precaution possible to assure the absolute safety of each and every paddler regardless of age and experience. PFD's and leashes will be required and we will have support boats nearby at all times. Depending on tide and wind there may be potentially dangerous currents along certain portions of the course, especially at bridges and narrow channels. While there will be a 2-mile recreational type race, this is still not an event for first-time paddlers. We ask that each paddler exercise common sense and caution while participating in this event.
