Main Beach Surf + Sport in cooperation with Paddlers for Humanity (P4H) will host the last Stand Up Paddle Race of the season on Saturday, October 6. The race begins at the Lazy Point Launch Ramp at the end of Lazy Point Road in Amagansett and ends at Eddie Ecker Park at Navy Road in Montauk, NY. Sign in starts at 8 a.m. and the race takes off promptly at 9:30 a.m. Cost to participate is $50. Weather forecast calls for West/Northwest winds and sunny skies. The race will follow World Paddle Association Rules. All racers must bring a Leash or PFD for the race.
East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue Squad is the beneficiary of this race. These men and women are master simmers and lifeguards who donate their time to help individuals who run into trouble on the sea. In regular attendance at major swimming, surfing, stand up paddling and other water events on the East End, monies are needed to ensure proper training and major equipment upkeep for the not-for-profit.
