The Carolina Cup published the schedule of events on their website. It appears that this year, all races will be on Saturday instead of the two-day format introduced in 2018. For those of you who doubled down and paddled both days last year, you’ll have to pick a vessel and go with it this year.

Note: I am no longer affiliated with the event, nor have anything to do with the planning, scheduling, pricing, awards, banquet, or anything. That said, I live here. I love paddling. Love seeing everyone. And I really look forward to catching up and paddling out with you all. This will be another fun week.
The Blockade Runner Beach Resort has been working feverishly to come back from the devastation of Hurricane Florence and will be reopening Valentine’s Day Weekend, so we know they will be open in plenty of time for the event. They’ve already repaired their docks and the sound and ocean sides look beautiful. Spring wil definitely explode by race weekend.
But please, happy or sad about the new schedule or trophies, or whatever, please don’t contact me about it. I will only accept taco, breakfast and paddling invitations.
