TO ALL OUR PADDLING FAMILY, FRIENDS AND VOLUNTEERS - due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, all three of our Flatwater Series have now been cancelled πŸ˜•πŸ˜•

Neither 2020 Head of the Dart SUP Challenge, Cardiff International White Water or Battle Of The Thames Year 10 have taken this decision lightly and we feel this is absolutely the correct decision at this time πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

HOTD and BOTT are dealing with their own refunds directly and CIWW refunds will be dealt with through GBSUP πŸ„πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ„πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Please look after yourselves and others and we hope you are able to get on the water for as long as possible 🌊🌊

What to expect

Stand up paddleboard short course racing in the UK is still developing along with the international race scene. The National series has grown to involve three types of racing; Distance (10 to 16km), Technical (beach or water start with laps around a course of buoys) and Sprint (up to 100m with or without a buoy turn).
