This summer CGT will be hosting a series of paddlecraft races on The Imperial River in Bonita Springs. The race will feature stand up paddleboard and kayak categories – with men's & women's classes. There are currently two courses planned for the series:

A 4.5 mile flatwater course from Riverside Park to River Park and back.
An 8 mile (approx.) course from Riverside Park to Bonita Beach (Big Hickory)

We are currently planning a total of 8 races, with the 8 mile course being the final race in the series. Our goal is to create a fun and pressure free way for people to get into the sport, with a course and regulations that even the hardcore racers will appreciate.The race will focus on getting accurate times for each racer so that they can keep track of their performance and measure their progress. Awards will be based on a point system with the racer accumulating the most points winning the series. For the 4.5 mile hobby race the racer's top 5 times will be used. 8 mile race rules are still being worked out (and we are open to suggestions, see below). Winners will receive trophies in the form of Calusa Conch Horns and a raffle ticket for the prize paddles. 

The public is invited to swap and/or sell their used paddle craft and accessories at the event. It is free to the public with donations going to the Bonita Springs Historical Society. CGT will be raffling off Hippostick carbon fiber SUP paddles designed by world champion SUP racer Danny Ching and a Bending Branches kayak paddle, with proceeds going to charity at the final event.

Register ahead of time by calling 239-938-5342 or in Artist Cabin #6 in Riverside Park.
Race will begin at 9:00 am in Riverside Park
Racers are encouraged to arrive by 8:30. 

Registration - $5 (includes raffle ticket)
T-Shirt - $10
