The Northern SUP Racing Winter Series kicks off on Saturday February 11th, with a fun race on Southport marine lake. All paddlers are welcome – there’s a 3km course for all-round boards under 12’6, a 5km course for race boards 12’6 and over, and a 1km course for juniors.


We’ll have loads of SUP-related prizes which will be won by a raffle based on race numbers – so you only have to be in it to win it! Star prize is a 2017 Starboard Tiki Tech Hybrid Carbon paddle. There will also be medals for top 3 finishers in each category.

Southport Sailing Club will kindly be hosting for the third year in a row – this means free lakeside parking, use of changing rooms and showers, hot drinks and snacks, as well as a great place for spectators to watch.

Registration starts at 10am, with a safety briefing at 11.30, and race start at 12 noon. There’s more information on our Facebook page here. Board hire is available – get in touch to book. Please register online before the day to help with planning and race timing. The next race in the series is on Manvers Lake, Rotherham on Sunday 5th of March with Juice Boardsports.
