This unique charity crossing supports the DeSatnick Foundation, a non profit organization aimed to financially and emotionally help those living w paralysis. After the Cape May Lewes Ferry transports participants and their equipment to Cape Henlopen, the event begins in the First State and finishes at Queen Street in the Garden State. Many individuals have crossed the mouth Delaware Bay on various craft, but The Cape to Cape is the only official charity race that pins racers against each other, the ever changing tides of Mother Nature, international shipping lanes and commercial fishing fleets. Competitors have reported seeing whales, dolphin, and other “sea creatures” during their endeavor across the Bay.

The prone division, where paddle boarding got its roots, is touted to be very competitive. In the unlimited class, the inaugural champion, Ryan Matthews, is back to challenge last year’s winner Jonny Skolnick, and Lewis Ostrander is always a podium threat in the endurance events. And in the 14′ and stock class, Joe Lemke, Dan Grothues, Terry Bradley and the Distressed Mullet’s own, John Beausang will compete for first place in these categories.

On the SUP side, both Brian Meyer (2016) and Chad Gallagher (2015) return to defend their respective titles in the 14′ division. Vying for first place will be Jason Chew, Andrew Dima, Todd de Satnick and Sean Duffey. And in the women’s division, the defending Champion, Josette Lata will return to make the crossing. She’s coming off multiple titles in 2016 and seeks to have anther stellar year on the east coast circuit.

The Cape to Cape would not be possible without the support of local volunteers on water and land. Our service men and women of United States Coast Guard offer vessel support during the event, along with Cape May, Town Bank, Goshen, and Lewes Fire Departments. Additional sponsors include Harry’s Ocean Bar and Grill, Lund’s Fishery, Cold Spring Fisheries, Seashore Food, Slack Tide Brewing Company, SUPRunner, Mainstay Marketplace, Harbor Outfitters, Suja Drinks, and Desatnick Real Estate.
