The 2013 Carolina Cup-keep it pure.

To kick off the 2013 season the WBPC organized the Carolina Cup with 4 courses: a kids race, a recreational fun race, an open race and an elite race. This is our third year. In 2012, the Carolina Cup was the largest race on the East Coast with over 400 paddlers competing in the first day of races. In 2013, we hope to do that same thing as last year, only better and with a few twists to make it even more fun. We’re also planning a number of really fun events that will make this a true stand up paddle destination event. It’ll be one that you can plan a 5-day weekend and bring the family.
