Race Day Saturday

When battles will be lost and won

Race day Saturday is your opportunity to demonstrate your SUP prowess and free that competitor inside you. 

It's all about having fun on the water and our sprint, technical, obstacle and relay races are specifically aimed at the  recreational paddlers  and they'll be more school sports than GBSUP Series.

Competitors will battle it out over the four different race types for points, those who have amassed the most points in each of our racing categories once all races have been run will be our very first UK SUP Fest Champions and trophies will be awarded at our prize giving night.

Fair Play 

Thanks to our partners at Whitehaven Harbour Youth Project who've kindly agreed to supply boards, leashes and paddles everyone will race using the same equipment thus creating a level playing field for all.  The boards that'll be used are 9ft 8" and 10ft 6".  

Race categories

Racing will be split in to 6  different categories;

Class A 16 - 20 Male Class A 16 - 20 Female
Class B 21 - 50 Male Class B 21 - 50 Female
Class C 51 + Male   Class B 51+ Female

Water safety will be provided by Copeland Canoe Club and the Event Team. However, you are responsible to ensure that your flotation device / life jacket is fitted correctly, you are leashed to your board when on the water and you follow the instruction of the Event Team at all times.

All competitors must complete the online registration process.

The category you will race in will be dependant on your age on the day of racing.

To cover water safety and insurance a registration payment will be applicable.

Although there will be an admin area facilities for getting dried and changing will be minimal. 


All race participants must have 3rd party liability insurance 

Online registration will open soon
