The 2014 Carolina Cup

2014 Carolina Cup

April 23-27, 2014

The 2014 Carolina Cup kicks off the race season with 4 courses: a kids race, the Harbor Island Recreational “fun” race, an Money Island open race and the dreaded Graveyard Elite Race. This is our forth 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 had over 600. We’re also planning a number of really fun events, including the Ocean of Hope Cancer Awareness Paddle on Sunday, all of which will make this a true stand up paddle destination event. Expect clinics by local favorite Jarrod Covington and Danny Ching, Jimmy Terrell, Larry Cain, Jaime Mitchell and PaddleFit. It’ll be one that you can plan a 5-day weekend and bring the family.
