Community Paddle will start immediately following the Chaotic Kayak Races. The Paddle will be around the entire island escorted by members of the San Diego Kayak Club. We have limited kayaks or SUPs for rent or bring your own!

Sunday, November 13th, 2016  9am - 2pm

Paradise Point - 1404 Vacation Rd, San Diego, CA


Come splash around and sip delicious beer for an incredible cause at this San Diego Beer Week event, benefiting Team River Runner, a non-profit that leads wounded veterans to recovery through kayak and paddling programs.

If racing is not your thing, but you still want to participate, don't worry! We also have a community paddle that will take place after the races. The paddle will launch quickly following the conclusion of the Chaotic kayaking races!  

We are changing it up a bit this year! Join us for our first Chaotic Kayak Race!

It goes something like this:
Teams of three will sit upon a tandem kayak, two paddlers and a gunner.  The gunner will be using a water soaker to slow down competitors during the race to the finish.

There will be four teams per qualifying heat, a 150 yard course, around a buoy and then a dead race to the finish line.

The winning team from each heat advances to the next round toward the final.

Kayaks, paddles, life vests (PFDs), and water soakers are provided; just come and dress to get wet.

4 Options to Participate: 

  • We Have a team, sign us up! 
  • We have a team, but need a sponsor.
  • Want to sponsor a team but don't want to race.
  • Want to participate but don't want to race. Community Paddle is for you!

Races will be at Paradise Cove and start at 9am:  Be there at 8am to receive instructions and your starting heat.

Beer, food, a live band and an auction will follow at Barefoot Bar and Grill starting at 10am.
