GBSUP 2021 Race Series Schedule

Following last night's announcement on the Water Skills Academy Webinar last night, the Team can now confirm the following 2021 race schedule (COVID willing) - with one change and one (to be confirmed) addition, we felt it only right that we shift what would have been the 2020 series over to 2021.

We have listened to your thoughts in our Paddler Survey and hope that two races further North will satisfy many paddlers - as usual, we always strive to give you what you want but know we can always do better!

A silver lining from this year is that we have been able to release race dates earlier than we ever have before!

Here's to 2021 being a fantastic year for paddling - we hope you are staying safe and getting out on the water.

Check out some of the fun racing we have!

What to expect!

Stand up Paddleboard (SUP) 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).
