Fun Race – The Bay 6k

UPDATE
Due to heavy FOG the SUP gathering Paddle across the bay was postponed and the 12 paddlers who turned up raced a short 2.1 mile course up towards West cross and back .
Thanks to all who came down – we’ll have to wait for better weather before the Bay 6k paddle.

Wednesday 24th April 2013 , The forecast at the moment looks good for the first Gower SUP boarding community fun paddle across Swansea bay on wednesday evening.

Tides
High water is at 6.20pm and is a 12.20M

The meet point will be at The ‘Y’ slip which is located directly in front of the Pilot Pub in Mumbles.
The paddle will then commence across the bay to the Navigation post and then back to the finish at the 360 centre opposite st Helens rugby cricket ground.
There is parking at the knab rock car park and free parking on Mumbles road if you can find a space.
The paddle will start promptly at 6.00pm

The finish is at The 360 Watersports centre , where there will be two flags which you will have to run through with your Paddle on the beach.

The Watersports centre has FREE changing and shower facilities for male and female and a cafe but closes at 7.30pm so a good idea to push yourself and see if you can make it over in an hour !

Race times – The fastest paddlers will complete the full course in around 45 minutes the slowest paddler dipping their paddle in the water occasionally will take 1 hour 30 minutes.
If you are finding it hard you can paddle straight across the bay which will take around 30 minutes less time and around 1 km off the distance making it easier.

The journey back
There will be one van traveling back to Mumbles at the end of the race. or you can paddle back over tide assisted !

Hope to see you there ! CALL me on 07799062447 for more info / details
