Bellingham Paddle Grand Prix Results

The second annual Grand Prix went off perfectly again this year, perfect except for the wind that decided to blow 20mph + from the south.  Each leg of the 4 lap course had us buggering into the headwind.  Ugh.

At the end of the 2nd lap, the race director let us know via bull-horn, that SUP's would only be doing 3 laps due to the weather.  Sweet, no complaints here.

This year, the race included surf skis, OC's and kayaks... and about 80 vessels duked it out to raise money for one of our local paddlers stricken with a debilitating disease.
